"The Night of King George V Silver Jubilee, 6th May 1935" by Sir Peter Markham Scott featured in Sussex Exclusive's article for Petworth Park Antiques & Fine Art Fair.

Mary, Princess Royal, the only daughter of George aunt of Queen Elizabeth II, purchased this painting from the 1935 exhibition at the Ackermann Gallery.
