Beatrice Parsons: ‘Driving’ garden painter’s work returns home

A watercolor by a “main English painter of nurseries” has been purchased by the exhibition hall near where she resided.

The work, by Beatrice Parsons, from Oxhey, a suburb of Watford, is relied upon to go in plain view at the town’s exhibition hall.

Bluebell Wood, Oxhey, was bought for £1,750, with subsidizing from Hertfordshire Legacy Asset and the Companions of Watford Gallery.

Watford Ward Chamber said the consideration of the work would “work on the portrayal of female specialists”.

Miss Parsons, whose work was displayed at the Regal Institute, was brought into the world in 1870 and kicked the bucket in 1955.

She was “one of the main English painters of nurseries” and Bluebell Wood would be the primary painting of Oxhey Park to be possessed by Watford Gallery, the gathering said.

Her canvas showed the Waterway Colne moving through the recreation area and the “magnificent exhibit of trees and bluebells”, the chamber added.

Peter Taylor, chosen Liberal leftist city hall leader of Watford, said: “The work of art is a brilliant perspective on this space which is highly delighted in, yet is minimal addressed in workmanship or in pictures inside our visual assortment.”

It was bought from workmanship vendor Abbott and Holder.
