H. M. Partington - Contemporary Gouache, Southwark Fair



A vibrant and fun filled silk painting showing various medieval characters from London's Southwark Fair. Southwark Fair was for several centuries one of London’s largest and most important annual fairs. Established in the early middle ages, its charter ratified by king Edward IV in 1462, by 1550 it was held on St Margarets Hill (now part of Borough High Street, Southwark). The characters include a monk, several jesters, a maiden, musicians and a maypole.

This characterful painting has been presented in a contemporary, brushed gilt effect frame with glazing and a cream card mount. There is a label at the reverse with the artist's name and address.

On silk.


There are some small areas of dirty markings in the lower right corner but otherwise, the painting is in fine condition. The frame has some scuffing and small amount of chipping to the raised edges but is in overall fine condition.
