          The view is from the first-floor windows of Ginnerís house at 61 Hampstead High Street. It shows the decorations put up in the street opposite, Flask Walk, for the coronation of George VI on 12 May 1937. Ginner had moved into this house in 1919, occupying the four floors above the shop, but he painted the view most frequently just before he left in 1938, depicting the view on Guy Fawkes Day and under snow, both also in 1937. The design of the painting is so detailed that is it thought Ginner may have used some kind of telescope.

          Artist details

          Charles Ginner was born in Cannes, France in 1978 where he was educated and decided to become a painter. His British parents disapproved and he worked in an engineerís office in Cannes until 1899, when he moved to Paris to study architecture. In 1904, Ginnerís parents withdrew their opposition to him becoming a painter and so he entered the Academie Vitti. At the end of 1909 after studying at different schools in France and spending some time travelling, he moved to London. He was persuaded to remain in London by his friends but he continued to travel with his art. After years of living in Camden, he became the most influential member of the Camden Town Group. In his later years Ginner became an Associate of the Royal Academy and in 1950 he was awarded the C.B.E.
