[From the Community Collection, a public trust in Agincourt, Iowa]
BROOK, Stephen [contemporary British]
“By the River” / “Westminster I” / “Westminster II”
oil on panel / 6 inches by 6 inches (each)
Three related paintings present late afternoon views along the Thames Embankment near the Houses of Parliament. Brook has a special affinity for layered atmospheric effects in urban landscapes.
These were a gift to the Collection in memory of Agincourt’s dealer in out-of-print books, British-born Hamish Brooks — no relation to the artist.
