'A Snowy London Square', attributed to Frederick James Porter, 1920s landscape

c.1928-9

About

Oil on canvas, in an early 20th century gold painted oak frame. Dimensions are 18.1 x 12 in (46 x 30.5 cm) unframed, 23.6 x 17.7 in (60 x 45 cm) framed. This atmospheric oil painting of a London square in the snow is attributed to New Zealand born painter Frederick James Porter, known for his rich and sensitive snowscapes. The snowy winter of 1928-9 may help date this work, placing it alongside the other snowy landscapes Porter painted that winter. The painting could show the west side of either Russell Square or Brunswick Square, demolished in the 1960s to make way for the Brunswick Shopping Centre and the north wing of International Hall. James Burton laid out both squares for the Duke of Bedford and the Foundling Hospital respectively, around 1800, and the buildings depicted are characteristic of his developments. Born in Auckland, Frederick James Porter studied painting with C. F. Goldie before continuing his education in Melbourne and Paris, where he studied at the Julian Academy for three years. He worked in England as a draughtsman and designer for the British Government during WWI. Porter was a member of the London Group from 1916 and Vice-President from 1925–35. His work is included in the collections of the Tate Gallery, London, Manchester City Art Gallery and other regional British museums, as well as national collections in New Zealand.
