English School, Cold Night In London

An atmospheric oil painting that evokes the sights and sounds of post-war London. The rain falls heavily on a damp street as two old friends discuss the latest news. The striking red of a warm double-decker bus cuts through its grey surroundings.

The painting is housed within a good later frame.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
