Carel Weight was appointed an Official War Artist shortly after the end of the Second World War and worked in Italy, Austria and Greece. In this painting, he was not concerned with the devastation of war but the effect of evening light on a winter scene, with students leaving the Army Formation College in Florence. Weight is now best known for his imaginative paintings of disquieting scenes set in south London streets.
