Exhibited: The Lightbox, Woking, Out of the Shadows, 2020, cat 29
Although Finney was reclusive and reluctant to show his work, he did exhibit at the RA Summer Exhibitions, the N.E.A.C. and the Paris Salon. This work owes a debt to French Art, and in particular the pointillism technique which was developed by George Seurat and Paul Signac at the end of the nineteenth-century. The tiny figures of a mother and child, seen through the open window, also bring to mind the paintings of Vuillard and Bonnard.
