This is almost certainly a view of an Irish quayside. The artist was fascinated by river and dockside scenes. He was born in Carmarthen, the son of the watercolourist Benjamin Archibald Lewis, and later served in the war in North Africa where he died of malaria in 1943. Influenced by Sickert, under whom he studied, he is best known for his landscape and genre paintings using bold blocks of colour over a warm underpainting.
