Paintings by George Morland - 84

Morland drawing - no title - let's call it RUSTIC FARMHOUSE. Here is an extraordinary scene of a "thatched" farmhouse found in Florida by a visior to this website. I have never seen anything like this before. This seems to be a barn with farmhouse accommodation above and below storage areas. The roof is "thatched" rough with unsawn wood from trees forming the rafters and wooded structure. The chimney looks dangerous and could set the whole structure alight. It's rather like the fairytale image of "The Crooked House".

Morland's signature.

Morland's initials on the saddle bag on the donkey - the same as in "The Thatcher".
