We believe this is almost certainly the painting he exhibited in the Royal Academy entitled 'A Cornish Lane'. It is a large oil and the canvas measures 49.5 x 29.5 inches.

|This facinating object was discovered in Cornwall. It is thought to be a carved timber ships figurehead and is probably at least one hundred years old.

We would be very interested to hear from anyone who can provide any more information about the object.|
