Silence: a burnt out interior in the City. Graham Sutherland's painting evokes the stillness that enveloped the ruined City of London after the Blitz. Sutherland later wrote of his impressions of the City in the immediate aftermath of its ordeal. 'I will never forget those extraordinary first encounters: the silence, the absolute dead silence, except every now and then a thin tinkle of falling glass - a noise which reminded me of the music of Debussy'.
