This painting is typical of Harold Gilman’s style using strong colour and thickly applied paint in a rigid composition. His main focus appears to be the walls and seating, rather than the figures whose heads and hats can only just be seen behind the tall backed benches. Gilman was a founder member of both the Fitzroy Group and the Camden Town Group, alongside Malcolm Drummond and Walter Sickert. These artists were strongly influenced by Post-Impressionism and often depicted everyday scenes of London life.
