George Price Boyce - Catterlen Hall

"Boyce was trained as an architect, but his minute, painstaking style has less to do with architectural draughtsmanship than with his friendship with the Pre-Raphaelites. Photography was well established when Boyce painted this watercolour. But although he carefully delineated the different materials used in the building, the variety of surfaces, he has not sacrificed atmosphere for photographic detail. Like Albert Goodwin in his view of 'Allington Castle' Boyce's images are bathed with the air of a summer's afternoon, with the warmth of the light on stone."
