BRITAIN


British Museum, £9.99 (£9); 0-7141-5034-7

Helen Allingham painted the cottages of southern England in the late 19th century to record a countryside she feared, rightly, would not survive the mechanisation of farming. This watercolour of Cowdray Cottage, Midhurst, Sussex, was done in about 1890.

It comes from Lindsay Stainton’s Britain, a charming little souvenir book of quotes and facts and anecdotes about Britain’s landscape and architecture, illustrated with watercolours, prints, and drawings from the British Museum’s collection
