Bratby was a leader of the so-called Kitchen Sink School – a group of young painters in the 1950s who portrayed domestic and working class scenes with a gritty 'warts and all' realism. Here, the view looks out across suburban gardens on a sunny winter day. The scene is deliberately non-picturesque, the lace curtain represented in caked, rutted paint. The paint has been squeezed directly onto the canvas then modelled into ridges and nodules that catch the light in low relief.
