London: A View from the Streets

    By

    Mesmerizing, exhilarating and awe-inspiring, London has provided a rich subject for the many artists, satirists, map-makers and engravers who have tried to make a lasting record of their impressions of the city. Representations of London are fascinatingly diverse, presenting a lively and thought-provoking body of work that lets us see London as it has been experienced by its inhabitants through the ages. London: a view from the streets brings together and interprets vivid images of the changing faces of London, featuring never-before-seen works from the rich collection of the British Museum. A broad range of pieces from artists including Canaletto, Hogarth, Cruikshank,Whistler and George Scharfe are all engagingly explored by Anna Maude, herself an expert on prints and drawings of London.
