Sawyier watercolor of the Berry Hill Mansion owned by the State of Kentucky

                                                  COTTAGE AT BERRY HILL


It is rumored that at one time Paul Sawyier actually stayed on the George Franklin Berry Estate, originally called Juniper Hill became of the many red cedar trees on the property. Berry was a prosperous distillery executive with W.A. Gaines and Company who in 1900 constructed this fine home, in the Colonial Revival style.

Sawyier created several scenes of the estate, usually of the house, but several also included the beautiful trees on the property. This watercolor is unique because it shows a part of the small stone cottage that was attached to the west side of the house.

 This painting has been sold.
