Bridget Macdonald is an increasingly recognised and influential figure in the tradition of English pastoral landscape drawing and painting. Her charcoal drawings, often worked on a large scale in a soft and smokey finish are charged with a sense of romance, place and personality. This subtle and delicate portrait of a family friend in the ruins of Witley Court in Worcestershire draws together the major themes of portaiture and ideal landscape in Macdonald’s work of the 1990s.
