A delightful oil on canvas by esteemed artist, Anthony Robert Klitz (1917-2000). The image 'View of the Thames at Westminster' is dated to the rear, 1980. The picture shows in the background the House of Commons and Big Ben, along with the Royal Air Force Monument in the foreground. The picture is framed in a presumably later gilt timber frame which is sympathetic with the piece.
Klitz started painting in his early 40s and once he started became a prolific artist primarily working with oils on canvas. Klitz regularly painted London because he felt that in comparison to many of the other great cities around the world, London was largely unpainted. London streets and cityscapes along with 'formal' military scenes of uniformed guardsmen feature regularly in his work.Measures - 81cm H x 71cm W
