This image is a watercolor painting of Eslava House in Spring Hill, Alabama done by C.W. Thompson in 1939. The house was built in 1840. The painting shows the front exterior of the house with its doors, windows, shutters, columned porches, two sets of steps, sloped roofs, and two chimneys surrounded by trees and landscaping. There is a fountain in front of the house. There is a woman on the side porch and a couple coming up the walk, all in period dress. The house is placed within framing art showing its architectural features including the molding under the roof, side and top views of the columns, the side steps, a side view of the house, a floor plan, a scale, the fountain, an iron gate, and flowering bushes. In the lower right corner, there is an Alabama Polytechnic Institute School of Architecture stamp with a handwritten inscription "1st Medal/HC" and the artist's information block which reads: "Measured drawing, The Eslava House, Spring Hill, Ala., Major IV, Architectural Design 476, March 4, 1939, C.W. Thompson." The painting is in excellent condition and is encapsulated.
