Curator Comment:
Barton, as author and illustrator, relates the imagery closely to the descriptive text. The owner of original watercolour, at the time of publication, was the artist herself.
Note on artwork:
This little red-roofed cottage still stands at the corner of Glebe Place, King's Road, Chelsea. The title of the work comes from the Latin meaning 'country in the city'. Barton delights in the details of this picturesque, rustic-styled cottage found in a central London borough.
