Very attractive oil painting on board of Tower Bridge in London. Fabulous colours giving a real sense of atmosphere - a timeless piece that would sit well in both a traditional or a modern setting.
We do not have any information on this artist, however the painting follows the style and colours of the Bloomsbury group
The first decades of the twentieth century saw an outpouring of literary and artistic creativity in London. Through exhibitions in 1910 and 1912, Fry introduced the British public to modern European painting, with many coming face-to-face with works by Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso and others for the first time. Fry also helped bind together a group of like-minded British artists, including Duncan Grant (1885 – 1978) and Vanessa Bell (1879-1971). They were inspired not only by these continental artistic developments, but by their appreciation for art from further afield, including Africa and China. They became known as the Bloomsbury Group, after the central London district where they initially lived and worked.They created their own distinctive brand of post-impressionism, and in around 1914 were among the first artists in Britain to produce Abstract Art.
