With Knighton-Hammond’s work nothing was so powerfully emblematic as architecture. The Priory at Montacute demonstrates this and his command of draughtsmanship. The historic building dominates the composition swiftly drawn with the brush with great freedom yet great accuracy. Painted on the spot, the watercolour possesses freshness and immediacy with an instinctive feeling for light, colour and tone.
