Help with Hen­nell

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IAM cur­rently writ­ing a book about Thomas Hen­nell (1903–1945), but one of the artist’s orig­i­nal works is prov­ing dif­fi­cult to find. It’s a signed wa­ter­colour of his home, Or­chard Cot­tage (above) in Ri­d­ley, Kent, which Hen­nell painted in 1938. This much-loved base was where he worked and en­ter­tained friends in­clud­ing Ed­ward Baw­den, Eric Rav­il­ious, Gra­ham Suther­land and Paul Nash. The pic­ture was sold at auc­tion by Duke’s of Dorset on July 7, 2005, but a record of the buyer no longer ex­ists. I would be de­lighted to hear from any­one who might know its where­abouts at jes­si­cak­il­burn@hot­mail.com Jes­sica Kil­burn, London
