Flask Walk, Hampstead 1922
Charles Ginner 1878-1952
Oil on canvas

Ginner was a member of the Camden Town Group,
whose subjects were drawn from everyday life.

In common with Valette and Lowry in the 1920s,
Ginner uses low tones and simplified figures in this work
to suggest an ordinary street scene in winter.

Their similarity of approach indicates
how the work of both Lowry and Valette
should be viewed in a broad national context.
