Piercefield was a highpoint on the Wye Tour but there are surprisingly few contemporary views from the house itself. Henrietta was a friend of George Smith's daughter who bought Piercefield from the ruined Valentine Morris in 1784. These drawings are therefore significant not just for their content but also for the close connection between the artist and the owners of Piercefield.
