Excellent condition throughout.
An unusual view looking eastwards towards Greenwich Hospital, contrasting the now-vanished ramshackle riverfront dwellings against the monumental grandeur of the Hospital. The listing ship at low tide is a pleasing detail, and the scene is enlived by the animated figures on the shore- the two coves in the foreground opening a mysterious bundle add a note of intrigue.
£65.00 mounted and framed.
