Lady Waterford Hall, Ford, Northumberland

Lady Waterford Hall, Ford, Northumberland
The biblical murals on the walls of the Hall were painted by Louisa Anne, Marchioness of Waterford, from 1862 to 1883 while the building was in use as a school. They were influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite movement, as was much of Louisa’s work.

The pictures were painted in life-sized watercolour on paper stretched on wooden frames or panels, which were then washed with distemper to tighten them, and mounted on the walls.
