VISIT SUSSEX BRIGHTLING OBSERVATORY

 

James came across this spectacular view of a Victorian observatory in the village of Brightling, Sussex. It’s set behind a magnificent panorama of rapeseed and bluebells, which swathe the surrounding fields like a yellow and purple blanket.

 

The village is famous for its collection of fascinating follies, including The Observatory, designed by Sir Robert Smirke in the early 19th century and built by John 'Mad Jack' Fuller.

 

Mad Jack (who was anything but mad, and only mildly eccentric) was one of the great English eccentrics, an eminent politician and patron of science and the arts.

 

The Observatory - a cylindrical tower folly and well-known landmark - was once renowned for its highly sophisticated telescopes and photographic equipment. In addition, the surrounding area is believed to be where Turner, the celebrated artist, painted a number of his landscapes.

 

THE PRINT

 

This signed print is one of a limited edition of 100. It’s recorded on Hahnemühle stock via a large format mimeograph and generally referred to as Giclée prints of premium quality. The paper is white 100% a-cellulose with a distinct textured surface and the premium matt inkjet coating more than meets the highest industry standards vis-à-vis density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness, while preserving the extraordinary touch and feel of genuine art paper.
