Limited edition print of an oil painting of Charing Cross Road, London




Buy this unframed: 32cm x 34cm (not including the white boarder paper) giclee print.  See below for Additional Information.

In my painting, I have chosen the view of the junction of Charing Cross Road (left to right) and Old Compton Street (ahead). At the far left is Cambridge Circus with the Junction of Shaftsbury Avenue.

This road running north out of Westminster and Trafalgar Square must have been there for many hundreds of years, although in the late 19th Century, the road was widened to cope with the ever growing city and was named Charing Cross Road.

In the 20th Century, it became famous for its antiquarian book shops. This was made possible because the block many were in, was owned by an housing association so the rents above subsidised the book shops below.

In 2001, however, the housing association ramped up the rents so many needed to close down. That said, a few are still clinging on and Charing Cross Road is still the go to place for books in London.

In this painting, I have tried to capture a few seconds on a single day in London. I have not tried to sugar coat the view, I have kept in the franchises of Neros and Harmony. Also, the modern delivery van because that is what was there on the day. There is something special about the ordinary world. It’s all very simple really.
Many thanks for reading.

What is a giclee print?

Giclee is a very high quality print process used by galleries and artists for exclusive limited editions. This Giclee process uses 12 true pigment artist colours (ultra marine, ochre etc) rather than the standard four dye colours in normal printing, so Giclee delivers greater depth in colour, tonal values and no yellowing over time.
