2, 4, 5, 3


This was one of a trio of small pictures of architectural subjects exhibited at the Royal Academy in the same year. London in the 20th century was full of demolition. Hitler started it and the ball and chain gang carried on. The buildings going down seemed more interesting than those going up. I've no idea what '2,4,5,3' means or meant. The numbers were just there on the walls, as I painted them. The picture is presented with a green/gold double moulding by the celebrated Italian framer Gibello.
