Harry Bush (1883-1957):
The Shower , mid 1920's
Framed (ref: 10353)
Oil on canvas
25 1/2 x 31 1/2 in. (65 x 80 cm)
This painting depicts the tedium of a British Sunday afternoon. Im many households the Sabbath was the only day when the front room was used - not infrequently for the family tea. The model is the artist's daughter
The painting makes interesting comparison to another Bush painting in which a window view is also also central to the composition in the collection of Regent Street Polytechnic
