From Wikipedia,
“Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (/ˈpjuːdʒɪn/ PEW-jin; 1 March 1812 – 14 September 1852) was an English architect, designer, artist and critic who is principally remembered for his pioneering role in the Gothic Revival style of architecture. His work culminated in designing the interior of the Palace of Westminster in Westminster, London, England, and its iconic clock tower, later renamed the Elizabeth Tower, which houses the bell known as Big Ben. Pugin designed many churches in England, and some in Ireland and Australia.[2] He was … the father of Edward Welby Pugin and Peter Paul Pugin, who continued his architectural firm as Pugin & Pugin.[3] He also created Alton Castle in Alton, Staffordshire.

Pugin was the son of the French draughtsman Auguste Pugin, who had immigrated to England as a result of the French Revolution and had married Catherine Welby of the Welby family of Denton, Lincolnshire, England.[4] Pugin was born on 1 March 1812 at his parents' house in Bloomsbury, London, England. Between 1821 and 1838, Pugin's father published a series of volumes of architectural drawings, the first two entitled Specimens of Gothic Architecture and the following three Examples of Gothic Architecture, that not only remained in print but were the standard references for Gothic architecture for at least the next century.”

Thanks for posing that intriguing question, Heicel. Maybe I'll take another look at Pugin's bios in search of clues. Paintings of open entryways often have that inviting quality. I'm glad to have met you here for tea.

That is an intriguing work of art. It looks like a wall-painting - I wish I'd know its purpose. It's not an architectural study nor does it show spectacular details. But it does have a strangely intimate, private quality and lets you half expect someone coming from round the corner, smiling and saying: 'There you are! Glad you could make it in time for tea!'
Thanks for this mysterious puzzle 😊
