Girl at Hogwarts

J. Wood of Alnwick, 1845


A charming watercolour portrait of a young girl standing in a pastoral landscape with cattle grazing in the foreground of Alnwick Castle, seat of the Dukes of Northumberland and famous as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. Holding a tiny basket of colourful flowers, she is wearing an eye-catching blue and white plaid dress over lace-edged pantaloons and dainty buckled shoes. Her straw hat, trimmed with matching plaid, hangs over her arm.

The portrait is signed reverse ‘By J. Wood Artist / Alnwick, June 1845’. It is set in a period rosewood veneer frame with a gilt slip.
