Claydon's (Clayton's)Farm

Oil Paintings by Harry Russell

AKA Leigh Beck Farm

Claydon’s Farm

The Oil Painting of Claydon’s Farm, where the eastern edge of ‘the barn’ can be seen on the left of the scene.

Claydon’s Barn

Harry wrote” The picture shows the old barn which stands at the old point bus terminal as it appeared thirty odd years ago As the road was raised about five or six feet above the surrounding land, it was possible at high tide to see the river as depicted.”

Neither building now stands, of course, and Harry left no clue as to the dates of painting or setting.

  • I remember dad telling me, the child playing by the pond with a stick in the Claydons farm painting is one of the rare occasions where he painted himself into a scene.

  • Hi, my name is Kari and I have a sketching of a younger women’s face signed by H Russell. I have been researching for a while now but I’m not sure if this is the writ artist. I can not seem to find the sketch in his gallery of art work. Any help here would be great.
