George Hervey Garraway, Church Interior With Rood Screen

George Hervey Garraway, Church Interior With Rood Screen

A beautiful study of a church interior with a rood screen by West Indian painter, George Hervey Garraway (1846–1935).

Rood screens are a common feature of late medieval churches and can be found in many parts of Europe. It’s possible that this one is located outside of the UK due to the extensive colouring of the figures towards the top.

George Hervey Garraway was born in Dominica but lived for many years in Liverpool. He was a member of the Liverpool Academy of Arts and exhibited at their Autumn Exhibitions.

The painting is signed/dated in the lower right and housed within a later frame.
