Knighton-Hammond was a natural painter, skilful, energetic, instinctive and varied. His skill in the handling of watercolour is everywhere apparent in this scene on the Franco/Italian riviera. One can observe the spirited brushstrokes of the tree, the architecture, the market stalls and the spontaneous definition of the figures mingling in the hustle and bustle of the busy market. The artist’s feeling for light, colour and tone enabled him to produce these Impressionist works of luminosity and clarity whilst the composition powerfully engages the spectator’s interest.
