This charming 19th-century drawing by British artist Edmond Albert Joseph Tyrel de Poix (1840-1916) depicts a timber-framed public house, figures, horses and a leaning signpost.

De Poix was a gentleman artist descended from French nobility. Born in Worcester, he tended to paint the local environs and one can imagine him sketching outdoors while exploring the ample countryside. For a number of years he exhibited at the wonderfully named ‘Woodpecker Sketch Club’, which later became the Worcester City and County Fine Arts Association.

Here, he’s added a further dimension by heightening the figures in white, which draws the eye. The pub is also rendered particularly well. Perhaps the unsteady, propped-up nature of the signpost reminds us of those leaving the establishment.

Glazed and framed.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
