This image is a watercolor painting of the G.C. Thompson House (also known as the Tate-Thompson House) in Tuskegee, Alabama done by James D. Shenesey in 1931. The house was built in 1840. The painting shows the front exterior of the house with its doors, windows, shutters, two-story columned porch, steps, balcony, iron hand railing, side porches with lattice work archways, sloped roof, and two chimneys surrounded by trees and landscaping. There is a woman in period dress on the porch. The house is placed within framing art showing its architectural features including the molding under the roof, top and side views of the columns, the corners and wall of the house, the iron railing from the balcony, various scales, and another woman in period dress. In the lower right corner, there is an Alabama Polytechnic Institute School of Architecture stamp. Above the stamp there is a white star with a handwritten inscription "1st Mention"? At the top of the painting is the phrase: "Drawn and measured by James D. Shenesey." The painting is in excellent condition, with no obvious wear, and is encapsulated.
