(23.5 x 34cm.) a pair (2) Lot Notes Pyne's father, William Henry Pyne (1769-1843), was also anartist and one of the Founder Members of the Old Water-colourSociety. George Pyne followed his father's penchant for landscapes,also being influenced by the work of John Varley (1778-1842), whosedaughter he married. He specialised in the painting of oldstonework and, perhaps as a result of this, received commissions topaint many of the Oxford and Cambridge colleges, as well as Eton.These two views of the college date from the same year as one ofPyne's publications on architectural drawing, Practical Rules onDrawing for the Operative Builder, and Young Student inArchitecture. Arguably the world's most elite sport, the Eton Wall Game isextraordinary and has been played by a select number of studentssince its inception in 1766. It is played against the slightlycurved wall that runs alongside College Field (visible in one ofthe present watercolours on the right hand side) and is roughly 110metres in length. Fellow's Eyot is a field next to the Thames from which the'Procession of Boats' can be viewed. This procession takes place onthe 'Fourth of June', a festival at which Etonians and theirfamilies celebrate the birthday of King George III (1738-1820), whowas a great patron of the school.

Description:
Measurements note 19.5 by 28 cm.; 7 ¾ by 11 in. DESCRIPTION signed and dated l.l. G. Pyne 1851 watercolour over pencil heightened with boycolour CATALOGUE NOTE George Pyne was the son of William Henry Pyne who, in turn was the son-in-law of John Varley. Like his relative by marriage he worked almost entirely in watercolour executing architectural, landscape and genre subjects. He exhibited between 1827 and 1843 and published several books discussing the technicalities of drawing and perspective. Peckwater Quad is part of Christ Church, Oxford on the site of a medieval inn, which was run by the Peckwater family. The buildings, which include the library (to the right) and undergraduate accomodation date from the eighteenth century and were designed by Henry Aldrich (1648–1710). David Scott attended Christ Church in Oxford where he read (Greats) classics and it is likely that this watercolour was one of the ones he recalled many years later, that he had purchased to furnish his undergraduate rooms. One of his more illustrious predecessors at Christ Church was Charles Dodgson, better known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll. He went up to Oxford in 1851, the year this watercolour was painted, but had to return home almost immediately following the sudden death of his mother. He was awarded a first in Honour Moderation before being awarded the Christ Church Mathematical lectureship, a post which he held for the next twenty-seven years. During these years, inspired by the Dean of Christ Church's daughter Alice Liddell, he wrote his famous novels.
