Who guessed correct?
Alyson Champ (The Chronicle of Wasted Time) got the correct answer first. I loved this contribution she found en route to locating this painting
Interesting to note that this panoramic seaside painting took 3 years to complete and contains over 100 figures (yikes!). Queen Victoria fell in love with it and bought it from Frith for a thousand pounds. A princely sum for the time!Others who guessed correctly (or very nearly so) were:
- Colours and Textures
- Sandra Robinson
- Mary theartistsday
- Maywyn Studio
- Barbara Jackson
