DESCRIPTION

The Pool of London  was exhibited at the Museum of London in 2000 as part of a series of topographical views by Di Stefano entitled Portrait of a City: The London Paintings of Arturo Di Stefano.


As the center of activity on the Thames ,  buzzing with a continuous  flow of boats, cargo, industry, workers, warehouses, and  quay-side activity The pool of London has a long tradition of inspiration for painter .  In 1906 Andre Derain painted ‘The Pool of London’ four times;  Monet painted the same subject in 1901 and Whistler in 1859. 

Di Stefano’s canvas might be read as a homage to both a great city and to great painters.
