description
Evening in the City of London. This view of the bomb-damaged City of London is taken from the tower of St Mary le Bow Church in Cheapside. Newgate Street and Cheapside are represented by the dark diagonal on the right. St Paul's Cathedral dominates the distance. This is Bomberg's only painting of bomb-damaged London, but his strong blocks of warm colour seem to express optimism. He once said: 'I want to translate the life of a great city ... into art that shall not be photographic, but expressive'.
