This is the Signed original Pen & Ink Wash by Cecil Doughty.

This violent scene painted by Doughty describes Normans herding hostages toward a stone castle after having pillaged the surrounding countryside. The soldiers tie up and mistreat their captives, pushing the elderly off the drawbridge into the moat, jeering to each other and even carrying away the young women.

Wonderfully executed brush work brings the smallest details to life, the loyal dog for example, who follows the servant boy, the facial expression and hand gesture of the lord on the battlements, and not to miss, Cecil Doughty's own initials carefully painted into the stone work in the foreground.

Price:  245.00
