Tim Scott Bolton has spent two years completing the 90 or so paintings that grace the pages of his first book and for 40 years he has travelled round Britain painting many of its well known homes in oils and watercolours.
A number of books have been released to celebrate the 300th
anniversary of his birth. ‘Capability Brown & his landscape gardens’ by
Sarah Rutherford is also in our library.
Bolton says “ Lancelot Brown was lucky to have been born in
an aesthetic age, the eighteenth century, the Age of Enlightenment. Today we
live in utilitarian times and I fear all I see is ugliness in much that is new.”
