Object Detail


Brief Description
Painting, watercolour on paper. Very detailed, it consists of two pieces of paper with a red- painted background, on which six headshots of cricketers have been painted, three to a page - "A.C. MacLaren; S.M.J. Woods; Lord Harris" and "W.G. Grace; A. Shrewsbury; K.S. Ranjitsinhji". The heads on the LH side are each in a scrolled oval frame, those on the right are in a joined frame. Each face has the name of the cricketer next to it. Sprigs of greenery, acorns on the left, and roses on the right, decorate the pages. Painting is affixed to a thin piece of card, held in place under the hinged cream and green double-windowmount by plastic photo- corners.
