Boar Lane, painting by Pete Lapish

Boar Lane, painting by Pete Lapish
c1945. Painting by Yorkshire artist, Pete Lapish, showing a view of Boar Lane. The artist intended to capture the atmosphere of dense, choking 'smog', typical at that time, which was created by the cold, fog and smoke pollution. To achieve this he has used a semi-pointilistic technique in his painting. More of Pete Lapish's images can be seen on his website www.petelapish.art
