This atmospheric watercolour of Trafalgar Square, London, has all the main landmarks included – Nelson’s Column, St Martin-in-the-Field, The National Gallery and one of the pair of lion’s statues. The picture engages with everyday subjects and collective activity with elegant, strolling figures enjoying themselves in this iconic location. The figures, mingling with the vehicles going about their business, occupy an important part of the composition and are closely observed giving movement and scale. The picture is painted in an Impressionist manner but with a limited and subdued palette to good effect.
