This picture shows part of the pond and farm lands which lay just outside the front entrance of Charleston farmhouse, a house Grant shared with Vanessa Bell and her family from 1916 until his death in 1978. Charleston is situated near to Lewes, Sussex and at the foot of the South Downs. Both Grant and Bell had their own studios in the farmhouse and views of its exterior and interior were the subject of many of their paintings. They also lavished their decorative talents upon the walls, doors, furniture, textiles and ceramics within the farmhouse, all of which is still intact. The farmhouse and garden are open to the public.
