William Havell (1782-1857) drew Sandycombe Lodge, then an engraving was made by WB Cooke and later still the engraving was coloured in. The original engraving can be seen on the Tate site here. Of course the surroundings are completely different now, but the garden is going to be restored, the house is now very much as it was, and we look forward to having a Persephone outing one day to view this excellent revival of a neglected masterpiece.
