A decoration was once owned by Pickford Waller, an English designer and a collector of Conder’s work, as well as paintings by Spencer Gore, George Lambert, William Nicholson, Charles Shannon and Whistler. In his house in Pimlico, Waller placed this large decorative piece in a room that was entirely hung with Conder’s works. It includes features that are typical of Conder’s work, such as the oval medallion, wreaths and ribbons, and decorative borders.
