Artist(s): James Stark (British, born:1794-11-19, died:1859-03-24)
Materials: Paper; Watercolour; Pencil
Information: 'Farmyard at Old Buckhurst, Sussex' has a freshness and immediacy that suggests it was made on the spot. A similar view of the same buildings from a slightly different angle is in the collection at Norwich Museum in Norfolk.
The work is inscribed with the year '53 on the back suggesting it was made in 1853. Stark, originally from Norfolk, was no longer living in the Sussex then.
Accession no: WAG 8159
Credit line: Bequeathed to the Walker Art Gallery by C F J Beausire in 1972.
