• Church St., Greenwich with St Alfege’s Church beyond -

    Indistinctly signed and dated 1845 lower centre

    Watercolour over pencil heightened with bodycolour

    33.7 by 24.2 cm., 13 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches


    This unusual view of Greenwich looks south down Church St from the river towards the Hawksmoor-designed church of St Alfege’s. Stylistically this watercolour, which is indistinctly signed, is very close to the work of the London artist and architect Ambrose Poynter (for a comparable watercolour, see Stephen Duffy, The Discovery of Paris – Watercolours by Early Nineteenth-Century British Artists, 2013, no. 58, p. 122).
