The Harrogate Advertiser have reported on news that the above painting of Oxford catalogued as 'English School (19th century)' realised £22,500 (hammer) over its £300-400 estimate the other week. Accompanied by another panel, presumably a depiction of Cambridge, both works bear the stamps 'IW RA' on the reverse.

Update - Reader Greg Page-Turner has been in touch to suggest the stamps might point towards an attribution to James Ward RA (1769-1859).
