St Martin's Lane though Edward Cullinan's eyes

Energy diversity and civilised dignity are captured in this ink drawing

Edward Cullinan
“St Martin’s Lane and Neighbours “
740 x 980 mm

This animated drawing illustrates one of Cullinans favourite London views, looking down St Martins Lane towards Trafalgar Square. It energetically captures the diversity of buildings and attractions in the area, from the bright lights of the West End to the bustle of the underground. Cullinan wrote of the drawing: “A medieval trade line is framed by buildings of all subsequent periods, seldom imitating each other, and at the far end it’s the tower of St Martin-in-the-Fields in the bright light of its fields which are now Trafalgar Square”

  • I like the drawing very much but think that the text accompanying it must relate to something else entirely...maybe its me but I'm just not getting the 'Energetic' 'Bustle'!
