Thomas Hennell R.W.S.,N.E.A.C (1903-45)

View from Orchard Cottage, the artist's home

Watercolour, c.1940

Hennell moved into Orchard Cottage, near Ridley in Kent, while recuperating from the period of mental illness that incapacitated him between 1932-35. The wwatercolours he produced there formed part of a remarkable recovery process, which eventually saw him become an Official War Artist in the Second World War. We hold an extensive collection of his work, which can be viewed on request.
