ALEXAN­DER CRESWELL, the artist famed for his paint­ings of Wind­sor Cas­tle, com­mis­sioned by the Royal Col­lec­tion, has cap­tured the beauty and tran­quil­ity of the Sur­rey Hills on a rather un­usual can­vas—a cow. One side of Fron­tier Cow shows sun­set over the Al­bury Val­ley, the other an ur­ban sky­line.

The life-size art­work is one of 19 cows, each by a dif­fer­ent artist, which will be auc­tioned to­mor­row at a gala din­ner at Hamp­ton Court to raise funds for Sur­rey Hills Trust and a num­ber of other char­i­ties. Es­ti­mated at £10,000– £25,000, it is spon­sored by The Duke of Northum­ber­land and the Al­bury es­tate and half the pro­ceeds of this par­tic­u­lar lot (No 14) will go to Shoot­ing Star Chase hos­pice. Visit www.ew­banksauc­tions.co.uk to place a bid and see the other cows for sale.
