Artist's Description

Looking through a window through the rain which distorts the black and white cladding of the Mostyn House School, Parkgate, Wirral, England

Mostyn House School”, which opened on 1st October 1855, was advertised as a “general and preparatory” school for boys ranging in age from 8 to 18.
Parkgate was a port in the 18th century. During the years when the port existed, two distinguished guests stayed in the local hostelries. One was Lord Nelson’s mistress, (Lady) Emma Hamilton, who was born in nearby Ness.5 The other was Handel who stayed in Parkgate before sailing to Dublin in April 1742 for the first performance of Messiah. He had finished Messiah in the summer of 1741 and at most he could only have added minor touches to the work in Parkgate.
