Catalogue Note

This picture was painted in 1932. When it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1962 Flint described it in the catalogue; 'A curious interior. A fortress-like building with no hint of ever having been a church, it was nevertheless furnished with ecclesiastical oddments. Altars and confessionals were mixed up with domestic appliances of the homeliest kind. It was another of my 'warrens', housing many families. With professional care I chose their most paintable members.'
