This watercolour of a design for a room is beautifully drawn in pen and ink and is highly detailed. The picture is a design for the furnishing of a room of a grand Victorian house. Designs of this kind were generally performed by architects or their assistants to help their clients in choosing the right kind of decoration for a specific area within their house.
The picture has been cleaned by an accredited paper conservator and is presented in a mahogany frame with a light oak slip and glazed. The watercolour is set away from the slip by an acid-free mount board to help preserve the paper.
The subject would look good on a stairway or hallway and is generally popular with interior designers and decorators.
