Looking back to December 1944. The date this painting, ‘Musical Hour’ was donated to the Collection, by Church Rd resident, Ellen Halstead, nee Pickles (1872-1953).

This delightful watercolour is one of a series painted by Achille Buzzi, a 19th century artist, of whom little is known in spite of the fact that he was a prolific painter. His common scenes were of oriental settings, religious figures and domestic scenes.
