When Mary's husband, the artist Julian Trevelyan, died in 1988 he had nearly completed a commissioned oil of Strawberry Hill House in Twickenham. Mary couldn't bear to part with it however and instead painted the house herself, adding her favourite commedia dell'arte figures in the foreground, adding a sense of humour to the subject.
