‘Buscot Park’, Eric Ravilious, watercolour, 1938.
Eric and Tirzah spent a couple of nights in Buscot Park in the summer of ’38. He described it as the grandest house house he’d ever been in, and mentions a whale’s jaw in the grounds. Whale jaws (often from the Fin or Bowhead whale) were not an unusual dight, acting as decorative arches or frames. Many examples still exist around the country, perhaps most prominently at Whitby in Yorkshire.
This card is also available as part of the ‘The Eric Ravilious Country House Collection‘.
