St. Benet's Abbey, Norfolk, England
Netley Abbey, Hampshire
From the collection
Pen and brown ink and wash over traces of pencil, inscribed verso: Miss Selby/Netley Abbey
This drawing is reminiscent of the work of Heneage Finch (1751–1812), Viscount Guernsey, 4th Earl of Aylesford from 1777, whose lively penwork was his hallmark. The work of his siblings and children share this attribute, and it may be that Miss Selby knew one of them and was influenced by their style.
Medium: Pen and brown ink and wash over traces of pencil
