Charles Mahoney’s Hampstead Backs

I love being able to see the back terraces and gardens that aren’t normally open to view. Charles Mahoney, friend and one time lover of the talented war artist Evelyn Dunbar, did this gorgeous painting of a pie shaped back terrace in Hampstead. The trees show early spring, but it must be a chilly one as the young woman appears to be walking briskly with her coat tightly wrapped about her and turquoise woolly hat firmly in place.
