As we mentioned in yesterday’s post, we’ve just returned from a short break in London & Brighton. In addition to visiting relatives and generally being lazy for a few days, we also had to collect a picture we’d bought on eBay a while ago.
The subject matter of this vintage Ken Law print was very apt!
It’s a stylised Thames scene featuring the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, working boats and riverside buildings.
It’s stunning… the use of colour & tone and the distinctive block style. We’ve been fans of Ken Law for some time now – we have a Hampstead High Street print by him too – and there’s a fabulous depiction of a New York bridge that we’d like to get hold of sometime.
We hung it on the wall of the lovely 1960s London house where we were staying to photograph it. It looked so at home there! We almost felt guilty packing it up in our car for the journey up North.
