1926 - An Accident

An Accident 1926
Oil on Panel
36.3 x 61 cm
A scene inspired by an incident in Pendlebury, Manchester, where a woman committed suicide by drowning. Seen against a backdrop of terraced houses, civic and industrial buildings, which are arranged across the background of the composition rather like a stage set against which the activity happens, a large crowd of people have gathered.
