‘Albert Square (after Valette)’ Charcoal on paper.

Image size 58 x 74 cm  Framed size 75 x 94cm (Black frame with white mount)

This charcoal drawing is a based on the 1910 painting, ‘Albert Square’ by the French artist Adophe Valette.  A contemporary of Lowry, Valette painted a smog-filled Manchester during the industrial era.  I drew this piece in 2012, and tried to recreate the scene as it is experienced in the present day. I found the exact spot where Valette would have stood when he painted the place in 1910, and made compositional sketches for my finished drawing. The cellar man pushing a hand cart has been replaced by a contemporary road sweeper, and in the background a modern day taxi takes the place of hansom cab. In Valette’s painting you can just make out the surrounding buildings through the smog. The modern skyline had changed, but the Albert Memorial and statue of Gladstone remain the same.


‘Burger Bar at All Saint's (after Valette)’  Charcoal on paper.

Image Size 82 x 53cm   Framed Size 102 x 72cm  (Black Frame with white mount)

All Saints Park Manchester art print from a charcoal street scene of Oxford Road, Manchester looking through the gates of All Saints Park, next to Manchester Metropolitan University. This piece is a modern day version of the 1911 painting ‘Old cab at All Saints,’ by the French impressionist Adophe Valette . I have recreated the scene from the same vantage point that Valette used, substituting the Burger Bar for the old cab. The market stall on the left of the picture has remained on the same pitch to this day. While the skyline has changed, some of the buildings in the distance remain the same.
