More watercolours of Normandy by Gordon C. Home – guest artist blogger

Our blogger is regular guest Gordon Cochrane Home.  An artist, traveller and writer, Gordon visited Normandy at the beginning of the 20th century.

This week Gordon is sharing illustrations of Évreux, Château d’O, Falaise, Porte Cordeliers Falaise, Gisors, Beaumont-le-Roger and a typical tree lined country road.  These paintings first appeared in his book ‘Normandy Illustrated, the Scenery & Romance Of Its Ancient Towns’ published in 1905.
