Object of the Week - Watercolour Painting of the Pier near Faithlegg House, County Waterford by Maud Power c. 1920s

Maud Power of Faithlegg House was an amateur artist who wrote and illustrated a book titled 'Wayside India' published in 1907.  The Spectator reviewed it as follows: 'Miss Power relates her Indian experiences in a lively fashion, not without a certain tone of satire when she comes to describe the manners and customs of the British.  On the whole, the pen and ink pictures are effective...the sketches which are by the same hand, show an elegance'.

The picture is a recent acquisition and is now on display in our art section in the museum.  We are hoping to build up a collection of works by County Waterford artists and would love to hear from anyone who has such works.
