PETER VAN BREDA | Evening Light towards Battersea Bridge, London

PETER VAN BREDA | Evening Light towards Battersea Bridge, London


13" x 21½"/ 33 x 55 cms

Oil on Canvas


This beautiful original oil painting by Peter van Breda depicts evening light catching the water of the Thames, looking towards Battersea Bridge.


Peter’s chosen method is to work directly from the subject, en plein air, and he draws much of his inspiration from the immediacy of the process. He works at speed, and to dynamic effect, to capture an effect of light and atmosphere before it changes.

  • Peter van Breda is one of Britain's leading en plein air painters. Dedicated to working outdoors, Peter's enthusiasm for painting is driven by his excitement at capturing the light, mood and atmosphere of a scene on canvas.


    Light reflecting on water and the bridges of London that cross the River Thames have always been of foremost interest to Peter in his painting. He first came to us in the City at Gladwell Co where he charmed the gallery with his scenes of St. Paul's Cathedral and Tower Bridge, amongst others.


    Peter's mesmerising impressionistic landscapes of London, Venice and Paris have since amassed a large following of dedicated collectors who delight in his record of these cities as they know it, in all weathers and at all times of day.
