View of Coventry Cathedral on fire during the bombing campaign of 15th November 1940. The Cathedral's tower is to the left; the stained glass window's outlines are silhouetted from the blazing fire inside. The paintwork consists of thickly applied, textured areas of paint, as well as featuring a distinctly bravura style of painting, where doodle lines are marked into the paintwork, reminiscent of smoke.
