By 1919, when this work was made, the Christchurch painter Raymond McIntyre had been living and working in London for a decade and the modern post-impressionist style he had adopted in his painting is evident. The view is thought to be from his studio window in the fashionable suburb of Chelsea, and McIntyre captures the energy of the busy street below with spontaneous, calligraphic brushwork.
