Street Scene, Rouen by Thurston Laidlaw Shoosmith

This watercolour showing a street in Rouen, France shows local artist Thurston Laidlaw Shoosmith taking inspiration from artists of the past.

Here Shoosmith is taking particular inspiration from J.M.W. Turner who depicted many towns during his artistic career. Shoosmith’s colour palette and viewpoint both take inspiration from Turner’s own street scenes. 

On display in Art Gallery 2 at Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, as part of the current exhibition: Inspiration
