Port Eliot Red Book — Designs for Lord Eliot by Humphry Repton (1792-3)

Port Eliot Red Book: The Craggs

A fabulous watercolour of The Craggs as seen when standing at the bottom of the old stone quarry. Repton had nothing but good to say about Richard Eliot's work in The Craggs. The painting is set in a border which includes the following French stanza:

"Les Arbres, les rochers & les eaux & les fleurs —
Ce sont la, vos pinceaux, ves toiles, vos couleurs"
