Jacobean Cotswold Gatehouse

Gatehouse at Stanway House, Gloucestershire, England.

Oil on canvas 30 x 36 inches

About the picture

I found this Jacobean gatehouse while exploring the Cotswolds region of England and was taken by its beauty.

Artist’s notes

The building is of Jacobean architecture, built of traditional red Cotswold stone. Described as one of the architectural gems of England the hall itself is the centre of a working estate which has changed hands once in 1275 years, and is the residence of Lord Neidpath.

The hall also has a particularly good fountain to look at.

With pictures like this one the building itself becomes a way of playing with colour, line and form. I see the picture as almost abstract and conceptual but given structure by the form of the building.
