This painting reduces a typical industrial scene of barges on a canal down to abstract shapes. Colours that appear to have once been vibrant now seem warm, dulled by the passing years but far from worn out. Daphne Boothby graduated from West of England College of Art, Bristol. She went on to travel in Italy and further her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, Pietro Vannucci, Perugia.
