5 Edwardian Turner’s Watercolours at Farnley Hall
A set of five wonderful souvenir books dating to the Edwardian period of the early 20th century.
Here we have a set of five collectable books detailing a selection of beautiful watercolours by J.M.W. Turner from the collection held at Farnley Hall in Yorkshire, owned by Mr. Walter Ramsden Hawkesworth Fawkes in the early 19th century when Turner became acquainted with him. Each black papered cord bound book is printed with the words “Turner’s Watercolours at Farnley Hall” with the coat of arms for the Fawkes family and Parts I to V in roman rumerals. Inside there are a series of paper plates with information about the gallery and the artist, along with superb colour plates with captioned tissue-guards. This is a wonderful set and sure to grow in value.
