As a student, Julian Perry visited Bristol Museum and Art Gallery regularly to see the Bristol School paintings of the 1820s. He often refers to landscape painting of the early nineteenth century in his own urban scenes and here the oak tree, about to burst into leaf, is a symbol of the future. In the spring of 1998 he returned to Bristol to paint a view of the city and focused on a group of newly refurbished tower blocks in Hartcliffe.
