The Kitchen at Elmswell Hall, York
Mary Ellen Best, 1834
The Victoria & Albert Museum
Here, we see one of Best’s creations—a watercolor view of the kitchen of a great country house, showing a woman inspecting bread dough as it is rising in a dough trough which is humorously supported by a chair. The piece was painted in Little Driffield, England in 1834.
