Fairlynch Museum's Object of the Month: July 2018

This copy of ‘The Boyhood of Raleigh’ was created by 19 members of the Budleigh Salterton Venture Art Group in 2015. 

They found it to be a challenging but enjoyable project, with individual members responsible for producing a panel each. Now that Fairlynch has the original painting on view you can compare the two by visiting the Raleigh 400 exhibition!

The verse below can be sung to the tune of ‘Greensleeves’, one of the best known of Tudor compositions.
