Evening On The Thames By Battersea

Evening On The Thames By Battersea

An unusual and strangely atmospheric depiction of Battersea Power Station in the evening. The paint is hazy and impressionistic with the street lamps providing the only clarity.

Battersea was constructed in two phases - with each contributing two chimneys. The second phase was completed in 1955, which was only a few before G Chambers painted this piece. It must have been quite a sight to witness from this viewpoint.

Signed in the lower left.

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.
