Thoroughly underrated British landscape artist whose works have a whiff of Edward Hopper in them. Apart from landscapes, favorite subjects were also canals, so much so that he earned himself the nickname "Canaletto of the Canals". The quasi total absence of people and the exhausted colors lend an eerie, almost post-apocalyptic quality to his paintings.

The Surrey Canal, Camberwell (1935).

The House by the Canal (1945).

A Country Path

The backs of houses, Harley Street, London (1925).

"There is beauty to be found in everything, you only have to search for it; a gasometer can make as beautiful a picture as a palace on the Grand Canal, Venice. It simply depends on the artist's vision." ~Algernon Newton

Good night.
