Painting of Zaria house, Nigeria

John Herbert, former veterinary officer in Nigeria, wrote to his parents, 19 May 1953: ‘I have also started a painting of the bungalow from the back, but don’t know how it is going to turn out yet. Tonight it was left under a light and rapidly became covered with huge flying ants (wingspan 2 1/2 inches!).’
