View in Kensington Gardens. Landscape painting showing a view of the North West, taken from the path leading diagonally from Queen's Gate to Broad Walk. There is an avenue of elms seen in distance which was cut down between 1953 and 1954 and on the right is Round Pond. There are a number of scattered figures. Although Sims was born in Islington and based in London until 1906, he painted London only rarely. Many of his works illustrate allegorical or religious themes, such as visions of paradise.
