London in Paint
Atlas Cultura: London
Welcome to London in Paint, a visual journey through one of the world's most iconic cities — and my former home.
Through the eyes of some of the greatest artists in history, walk along bustling streets, float along the River Thames, and gaze in wonder at the historic landmarks of the Big Smoke. Through the brushstrokes of the old masters, see London in all her guises. From the interplay of light and shadow on her cobblestone lanes to the majesty of her towering bridges, from her panoramic vistas to the moody fog of her sky, these paintings will transport you into the heart of the great city.
Canaletto shows why he’s such a master of architectural painting as he captures the sharp lines of London’s most iconic cathedral.
Anderson has captured the London weather so uncannily in this scene. Head towards the South Bank at dusk to catch the light striking Big Ben in this way.
