Great British Watercolors from the Paul Mellon Collection at the Yale Center for British Art ArtDaily.org

“In a period of little over fifteen years, beginning in the early 1960s, Mr. Mellon assembled one of the world’s greatest collections of British drawings and watercolors. As part of his extensive collecting, he purchased several distinguished private collections of British watercolors, enriching and expanding them with astute purchases reflecting his own taste… Through his beneficent gift of his collection to Yale, the Center houses more than 50,000 drawings, watercolors, and printsthe largest and most representative collection of British art on paper outside the United Kingdom.”

    Was curious as to the whereabouts of a watercolor painting that was in the collection of Mr. & Mrs. Paul Mellon titled “Over the Stile” c.1878 and if the artist is indeeed John Everett Millais. As a watercolor student myself, I have tried to paint a similar watercolor and would surely like to list it as a study of the Millais original if appropriate.
    Thank you so much.
