Art / Wall paintings
Distemper paint, lead oil and alkyd paint, cement.
Hidcote Manor Garden, Gloucestershire
Painted surfaces of North Gazebo. Extract James Finlay 21/07/2006: ‘The dome has a 'trompe' painted scene depicting a marbled plinth, on which sit four evenly spaced Chinese vases against a blue sky backdrop, with a scallop edged canopy floating centrally overhead. This trompe work would appear to be by LJ, except for a few areas which have been repainted or retouched subsequently’. The walls were originally painted in a strong yellow distemper.
