Mrs Eveleigh Nash, The Mall, London

About this artwork

This is a very elegant composition, with an element of surrealism. It seems to have two perspectives and two vanishing points - the avenue of trees and the little figures on the left inhabit another world from the terrace of the houses on the right. The wealthy Mrs Eveleigh Nash in the foreground is, unexpectedly, shown as a shy woman. The two men in conversation walking by and the distant figures on the left are not so much a background as other lives being lived at the same time.
