This lovely little 19th century watercolour of the Norman Bridge at Eckington, gives us a glimpse of a quiet day by the river . The watercolour heightened with body colour and monogrammed to the lower right is one of the artist’s ( T Stuart) most tranquil pieces . The subject, Eckington Bridge is a stone bridge over the River Avon in Eckington in the English county of Worcestershire.
The first bridge at the site was built in 1440, replacing an earlier ferry, but this fell into disrepair and was replaced by the current stone bridge in the 1720’s. It consists of six arches built of sandstone with the piers being protected by cut waters. This painting will give anyone a moment of tranquility.
