An original watercolour painting and a truly excellent example of George Oyston's work. This landscape painting depicts a rural scene in Chobham in the early part of the 20th Century. A figure apparently a woman is walking down a country lane past a fenced field.
We believe Chobham in this case possibly refers to Chobham Common in Surrey (England, UK) rather than the actual village of Chobham (also in Surrey).
Chobham Common is an area of temperate lowland heath, a globally rare and threatened habitat due to its rare soil type. Oyston's painting appears to show heathland to the right hand side of the painting.
Today, Chobham Common is a national nature reserve, Special Protection Area under the EU Birds Directive and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
