Sketched view of Bow Church, Cheapside through the rubble of collapsed buildings. Paul Ayshford's drawing shows the tower of St Mary-le-Bow standing amidst the rubble of surrounding buildings. Four months after Ayshford completed this work, and less than a week before the end of the Blitz, the church was destroyed. A landscape and figure painter, Ayshford studied natural science at Oxford before turning to painting under Sir Charles Holmes and Walter Sickert. He held a number of official positions in the London art scene including Trustee of the National Gallery and Tate Gallery.
