Full image caption

Mornington Crescent. Oil on canvas. Viewed from the first floor of Spencer Gore's room at 31 Mornington Crescent, this painting looks northeast across the Crescent Gardens towards Mornington Crescent Tube station. Gore rented the Mornington Crescent room from 1909 until 1912 when, newly married, he moved to Houghton Place. During part of this time his close friend and colleague Walter Sickert also lived in the street. Gore painted this view frequently, in a French impressionist style that characterised this period. He was less concerned with atmosphere than with finding a 'pleasing balance' between bricks and leaves.
