William Walcot (1874–1943) failed to make his mark as an architect but as a perspectivist and architectural artist, he had few rivals. Born of British parents at Odessa, he trained in St Petersburg and Paris and came to England in 1905. As an artist, he was known for his splashy impressionistic style. Most of his work was in watercolour and gouache and this is one of his relatively rare oil paintings.
