Benois Albert (Nicholaevich). English Cottage. Fine art print B2
Do you know where 'The English Cottage' is?
Is that the painting's name or what people have chosen to call it?
The cottage is 'The Coppice' at Shilton, near Burford in Oxfordshire.
The Edwards family have lived there since 1919 and it is where Camilla Benois died in 1934.
Albert Benois and his younger brother Alexandre were visitors on a number of occasions - Albert more often than Alexandre.
I think the painting was executed in 1934 when Albert came to England for his sister's funeral.
(Jeremy Matthew Benois Edwards, the great grandson of Camilla Benois [Albert Benois' sister])
