De Winton Family Collection
This interesting collection of works in watercolour are linked to the family travels of the de Winton family over nearly a century, from 1842 to 1914. The de Winton family has strong ties with Brecon in South Wales, but locations depicted in these paintings include Scotland and Switzerland. Our collection has ties to Walter Bernard de Winton (1850-1944), Chief Engineer and Secretary to Government in Madras, and his daughter Dorothea Mabel (1891- 1982), who became one of the first female geneticists. Bright and airy, these works represent the ever shifting artistic views of the English landscape as it evolved over time throughout generations.
