Very good condition; laid down on board with the original mat glued to the margin of the paper – well outside the image. The title is written by hand in the upper margin of the paper.

Peggy Wyatt is mentioned by C.R.W. Nevinson (1819-1946) in his book Paint and Prejudice and a copy of the book was also inscribed by the author, ‘To Peggy from C.R.W. Nevinson’. Nevinson was on the selection panel for WWII war artists but Peggy’s application was unsuccessful (not meant to suggest a connection between the two facts). Otherwise, her career is not well documented. An English watercolor botanical artist, Peggy Wyatt, was active during the 1980s and 90s – perhaps the same person. The botanical artist was born in Kent, educated in London, and as an amateur watercolorist participated in group exhibitions with the Royal Horticultural Society, London, and the Society of Botanical Artists, London. She was the recipient of the Grenfell and Silver Medals awarded by the Royal Horticultural Society. She received numerous private commissions, was reproduced by the Medici Society, and her watercolor Aesculus hippocastanum is in the collection of Hunt Institute. There is no evidence that the two persons are the same, however.
