Wilfrid Gabriel de Glehn RA NEAC, 1870–1951
De Glehn found the Thames in all its moods endlessly fascinating and during the winter months when the weather prevented him from working out of doors, he would often paint the views visible from his studio window at Cheyne Walk. In this early evening view of Battersea Bridge, looking westward, is Lots Road Power Station built in 1904 to provide additional electricity to power the London Underground’s new District and Circle lines. It had four chimneys at that time.
