Shilstone House and Picture Tour

Lucy Fenwick, the owner of Shilstone, worked for many years at the auction house, Sotheby’s, as a director in the British Paintings department. It is with this expertise that she and her husband, Sebastian have put together a fascinating collection of important and interesting paintings, drawings, and watercolours. These include a significant collection of 17th, 18th and 19th century oil portraits and landscapes, including works by Thomas Gainsborough, John Wootton, and George Romney. There is also a room dedicated to 20th century modern British, including works by Walter Richard Sickert, Augustus John, James Dickson Innes and Cedric Morris. Finally, a large collection of watercolours mostly of Devonian landscapes, as well as other pictures of interesting family connections.  Lucy will be delighted to answer any questions regarding the pictures.
