A vivid and expressive street scene depicting a continental town, with figures and cars. We have attributed the work to Harwood-Eve due to the similarities in the handling and style. The name 'Col Harwood Eve' was also inscribed on reverse of the original frame. Unsigned. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and light foxing. Pin holes visible to all four corners and to the upper central area.

Artist Biography

Artist Walter James West was born in Birmingham on 17th December 1882. He started studying at the age of 14 at the Central school of Arts and Crafts in Birmingham. In the 1911 census he is listed as a silversmith chaser. By the age of 30 he was registered as a part time teacher and student. Later in 1918, he became a regular teacher of drawing at Vittoria Street Jewellery School, where he worked until his death in 1942. West became an associate of the RBSA in 1936 and was a well respected artist amongst his peers, frequently exhibiting at The Birmingham Art Circle throughout the 1930s. He mostly exhibited landscapes in watercolour often depicting seascapes, architectural and topographical scenes. At the time his work was reviewed in the press and was described as having “a clean and careful skill in drawing with a love of delicate colour”.
