To the Lighthouse Oar


'To the Lighthouse' an original oil on a vintage Cornish oar, imagining the view Virginia Wolf enjoyed on coastal walks to Godrevy Lighthouse during her visit to The Lelant Hotel, Lelant (now the Badger Inn) in 1909.

‘In retrospect nothing we had as children made as much difference, was quite so important to us, as our summer in Cornwall.’ – Woolf, A Sketch of the Past, 1940

Painted in oils, this vintage Cornish oar measures 178 cm x 13 cm
