A La Ronde, Devon (Accredited Museum)
This artwork clearly shows Jane and Mary Parminter's ability to recycle items collected within close range of their home. It is easy to imagine these ladies collecting seaweed, sand and shells from the local beach later to be used with their own creative style.
Picture made of sand, seaweed and shells applied to paper. Rustic scene with man, woman, sheep, grand house in background. Original Parminter work. In modern gilt frame
