`Lago de Garda, Italy`
Winifred Sedgwick 1950
A beautiful and delicate impressionist watercolour depicting the view down through an olive grove towards Lake Garda - this painting has a lovely sunny feel to it and has captured the essence of Northern Italy. Winifred Sedgwick came from a priveliged family and it would appear she and her sister spent a great deal of time travelling in Europe and the far east from the 1920`s onwards, they do not seem to have married. They were the last of the Sedgwick line who resided at Grantham House in Grantham, Lincolnshire - which is now a National Trust property and houses a collection of watercolours by the artist, part of the National Trusts collection which can be viewed online. This is quite a late work which is very accomplished. The painting is housed in a grey/green and gold wood frame which complements the painting perfectly. New ivory colour mount.
Winifred Sedgwick (exh.1919-1939) was a watercolour painter who resided at Grantham House in Lincolnshire. As far as I can make out the family fortune was based on the Brewery Industry. Winifred Sedgwick was elected an associate of the Nottingham Society of Artists in 1916 and exhibited there on several occasions. She was a founder member of the Lincolnshire Society of Artists.
