Flat Bastion Road

Acrylic on Canvas

A colourful painting of Flat Bastion Road, portraying an expressionist rendition of the Old Town in Gibraltar. The colours used are vivid with energetic strokes of orange, green and yellow creating a flow leading the viewer in an around the buildings. Finlayson was well known for his artworks portraying the rooftops of Gibraltar and this is thought to be one of his first depicting the subject. As in many of these themed works, there are no people in the streets, with his emphasis purely on the architecture and nature of the streets and rooftops. The area would have provided many memories for the artist as he grew up in the area.
