Brooke House wall painting
The background of Tudor roses suggests that the panel was painted after 1485 but before 1532 when the house and estate had come into the possession of Henry, 6th Earl of Northumberland. Although the panel has no great artistic merit, it probably reflects the general level of decorative painting at the time, and is of particular interest because it is the only surviving example of wall painting executed in the London area, which dates from the early Tudor period.
