This is one of several paintings that depict the Rectory Lodge in the village of Pett, where Sylvia Sleigh lived for several years. In the foreground is a flowering morello cherry tree that partially obscures the building behind it. The painting reveals Sleigh’s interest in gardens and topographical landscapes. The Rectory Lodge was demolished in the 1960s.
