The street in Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire is a good example of the artist’s grasp of perspective and rendering of architecture. The pavement leads or entices the spectator into the streetscape. The different styles and periods of the buildings are so well painted. The road running into the distance gives great depth to the composition. The horse and cart and figure bring life to the picture and gives an idea of scale.
