Footnotes

  • This is a very early , and untypical, work by Isherwood. Unusually, it is painted in watercolour. The style is similar to very early watercolours by Theodore Major, the similarity is possibly due to their both studying at Wigan Art School.

    Isherwood's interest in the subject pre-dates George Orwell's novel "The Road to Wigan Pier", which was published in 1937.

    Provenance: gift from the artist to the present owner's mother.
