St. James's, Piccadilly

Marianne Le Poer Trench

b. 1888 - d. 1940
Oil on canvas

'St.James's, Piccadilly' is painted in a realistic manner, in the Slade style of landscape painting of this period. There are resonances of the English painter John Nash (1893-1977) in the dry brush technique, the even light, the writhing shapes of the trees and the close tones of ochres and siennas.

An oil urban landscape painting depicting a footpath in the immediate foreground running in front of a brick wall behind which are several trees. In the middle background a large Georgian red bricked house can be seen.
