This etching has been made specifically for a 20th anniversary exhibition in Inverness where the only criteria set was that the artists had to in some way reference the number 20. My piece is set on Jermyn Street in the St James’s area of London - a street renowned for its tailoring and sartorial splendour. As with all of the pieces in this series, every figurative element references a historical work of art and in this case, as it’s Jermyn Street, all of the works are by German artists (apologies). There are twenty odd references to paintings that were all made in the 1920s. Oh and the time on the clock in St James’s Church is twenty past two (for the theme it probably should have been 20.20 but this seemed wrong as the shops would all have been closed).
