In the mid-1870s a new dining room was added to Bank Hall, the home of Manchester merchant Henry Renshaw. Stained glass, paintings, tiles, plasterwork and pannelling combined were included in the resulting room. The main feature was a series of paintings set into the pannelling to designed to give the impression of looking into a Romanesque garden, painted by Thomas Armstrong and Randolph Caldecott and installed in 1875. In October 1980, the paintings were removed from the house and sold at Sotheby's, Belgravia. (1)
