I dropped into the Ferens Art Gallery (Hull, UK) to see their exhibition of Charles Napier Hemy paintings and spotted these skeps in the corner of the painting below. Hemy's known for his seascapes and Pre - Raphaelite influence.

Due to his Pre - Raphaelite influence he was attempting to record 'nature' as 'the eye sees it'. Which means that we can more or less assume that these beehives and the garden that they are in are fairly true to life. And I think it makes a fascinating historical (full colour) snap shot of beekeeping in mid 19C Britain.

Those telescoping covers look fairly in-expensive too!  I wonder if they have "prints" of that painting for sale.
