Pollok House c 1830.
This watercolour is one of a series painted by an unknown artist working for the Maxwell family. The paintings show different landscapes and buildings on Pollok Estate and are a unique record of a west of Scotland country estate in the early 19th century.
The painting depicts Pollok House viewed from the north-east. The birds in the bottom corners are scraps which were pasted onto the watercolour at a later date.
