Artist's Description

This image epitomises a bygone era of elegance, style and charm – halcyon days of weekend house parties attended by “bright young things”, when afternoon tea and croquet on the lawn preceded a civilised evening of cocktails, dinner and charades. The car featured is Halle Selassie’s splendid 1933 Rolls Royce. I recaptured a sense of this era – gracefully modelled by Touchen – at Oldway Mansion, Paignton, Devon, once the home of Isaac Singer, founder of the renowed sewing machine company. Isadora Duncan, the lover of his son Paris, was often seen dancing here – a wild free spirit amidst the opulence.
