Sun Insurance Building
Sun Insurance Building, Newcastle (Oil on board, 12 x 24 ins)
An interesting week, about which I may have more to say in the coming days, but notable in part for some sales of paintings. This is one of them.
The painting shows the top of one of Newcastle's fine buildings, built originally for Sun Insurance, although they no longer have offices there. The work dates from a period when I was very interested in looking up at the tops of buildings, something that few people do, and is a kind of companion to this one (owned by the same purchaser):
