Between Kilburn and Willesden Green, Winter Evening 1992
This painting shows diesel and electric trains passing one another on railway lines running at the foot of the artist's garden in north London. Kossoff began painting railway landscapes in London in the early 1950s. The speed of the trains and swaying trees are captured by the expressive handling of the paint. Even the small drips of paint that crisscross the painting suggest movement. Paradoxically, this image showing a transient moment is rendered in thick paint, giving it a tangible and enduring physical presence.
