View of a Table Mountain from Bishop Colenso's House, Natal

“Painting 364”

Kicking off the new website & blog with this image of my research area from the Kew Marianne North Online Gallery. North visited Bishop Colenso’s home sometime during her 14 years of travel between 1871 and 1885. Her South African paintings are lovely, but I am of course partial to this one of Table Mountain.
