Artwork description

In this pencil and watercolour work, Olwyn Bowey returns to her favoured territory of exploring the lush environment and captivating perspective of the traditional Victorian greenhouses of West Dean in Sussex. Bowey’s paintings and drawings are characterised by a vigorous interrogation of their subject matter, which includes flowers, fruit and cacti. Originally laid out in the 1890s and 1900s and now extensively restored, West Dean features a range of greenhouses, a working kitchen garden and a 100-metre-long pergola by architect Harold Peto.
