Landscape bought by current owner of Kerkicoondah coffee estate


Jacob Mammen, managing director of Badra Estates, India, standing with me in front of the landscape that he bought, “Sunset from Elephant Hill”.  Behind us, at the top, is the picture of the same view painted by my great grandmother, Ellen Browne.

It is thrilling for me to think that my landscape is being taken to India to be hung in the sitting room of the estate bungalow built by my great grandfather, Charles Herbert Browne, in the 1890s. This is now Jacob’s private house, and has been in his family for 70 years – almost as long as it was owned by the Browne family.
