This image is a watercolor painting of the Pease Home in Columbus, Georgia done by Elwyn B. Richey sometime around 1934. The year the house was built in is unknown. The painting shows the front exterior of the house with its doors, windows, shutters, columned porch, exterior stairs, balcony, iron hand railing and decorative iron arches, flat roof, and two chimneys surrounded by trees and landscaping. The house is placed within framing art showing its architectural features including the iron hand railing and decorative iron arches; the molding around the doors, a side view of the house, various scales, and a floor plan. In the lower right corner, there is an Alabama Polytechnic Institute School of Architecture stamp with the handwritten inscription "2nd Medal" and an artist block which reads: "Elwyn B. Richey, Alabama Polytechnic Institute, fourth year major II, 'a colonial house.'" The painting is in good condition with a minor piece missing from the lower right edge and is encapsulated.
