A House and Cottage near the Quay at Orford

A House and Cottage near the Quay at Orford

Jack L. Airy seems to have been an amateur artist, for his career is not recorded. This watercolour of a house and cottage at Orford is typical of his naive style, with broad areas of flat, bright colour and schematic outlines. Of the eight watercolours of sites in Suffolk that he contributed to the Recording Britain project, four were of Orford and its environs.
