Kokoschka produced many panoramic landscapes from bird's-eye viewpoints. From the eighth floor of the Savoy Hotel, between 10 March and 28 April 1928, he painted a view up the Thames, and this work depicting the view downstream. In the foreground tugs pass beneath Old Waterloo Bridge and at the left the Embankment curves past Somerset House to the City and St Paul's. Born in Austria, Kokoschka worked principally in Vienna, Berlin, Dresden and Prague until 1938 when he fled to Britain.
