About

To view our other Modern British Art and our views of London scroll down to 'view all from this seller' and search. Horace Mann Livens (1862-1936) Hanover Square London (1920) Gouache on paper 37×27 cm Signed HML, and dated to reverse. A talented British Impressionist, Livens is perhaps most famous for having painted the first known portrait of his friend Van Gogh - whom he had met whilst studying at the Academy in Antwerp during 1885/86. They remained in touch thereafter. Livens deserves to be much better known than he is, the main reason he is not being the destruction of much of his work firstly in the blitz and secondly in 1957 at his widow's home. Here he paints one of his many views of London's West End, capturing Hanover Square in all it's Georgian grandeur before the combination of the Blitz and post-war town planning took its toll on this once tremendously elegant square.
