Jane Young: Whitechapel Tenements
This little watercolour is one of a few paintings I have been working on depicting life in East London in the twentieth century. They are all inspired by family photographs, archive images and biographical accounts.
The oppressive gloom of the buildings contrasts with the colourful comings and goings of everyday life, scenes from within the inner courtyards not visible from the main thoroughfare.
