A charming little original watercolour painting from a collection by MFS of scenes in the Channel Islands. Original painting by the artist and an antique of the nineteenth century. Monogrammed in lower right. On card backing: 25 x 17cm.
This particular landscape painting depicts a scene in Jersey, a Crown dependency of the United Kingdom, located off the coast of Normandy, France.
Jersey was part of the Duchy of Normandy, whose dukes went on to become kings of England from 1066. After Normandy was lost by the kings of England in the 13th century, and the ducal title surrendered to France, Jersey and the other Channel Islands remained attached to the English crown.
