Description

Pyne was primarily an architectural draughtsman, who was influenced by his father, William Henry, a Founder Member of the O.W.S, as well as by the work of John Varley, whose daughter he married.

The elongated format of the present watercolour has enabled Pyne to depict both Windsor Castle and town in the distance, as well as part of Eton College and Chapel from College Field, on the opposite bank of the Thames, which meanders between the two.
