A Cottage at Easton

A Cottage at Easton

Jack L. Airy's flat colour and schematic drawing are much in evidence in this watercolour of a cottage in the village of Easton, Suffolk. Airy produced eight views of Suffolk for the Recording Britain project; his career is not recorded, and this fact, in tandem with his naive style, makes it likely that he was a talented amateur. It is impossible to say whether the cottage he painted stands today, but it bears a strong resemblance to those which stand around the village green, many of which are painted the same pale pink.
