Famed for his French landscapes, including his beloved Dieppe, Sickert turned his attention to the British countryside after the outbreak of War in 1914, and alongside Brighton and Chagford in Devon, Bath became a popular subject matter for the artist.  First visiting in 1916, he returned the two following years, renting a large studio at 10 Bladud Buildings and raved that ‘…Bath is it.  There never was such a place for rest and comfort and leisurely work.  Such country, and such town’ (the Artist in a letter  to Ethel Sands, 1918, quoted in Wendy Baron, Sickert, Phaidon Press Ltd., London, 1973, p.156).  In Bath he captured some of the town’s most well-known monuments, including Lansdown Crescent, Paradise Row, Beechen Cliff from the Belvedere and Pulteney Bridge.  A unique feature of English architecture, the bridge, designed by Robert Adam and opened in 1771 is the only one in the country with houses running along both sides, and was a scene that allowed Sickert to incorporate elements of both the urban and pastoral in a single composition.  There are at least seven painted versions, the largest of which resides in the collection of the Paul Mellon Collection, Yale Centre for British Art, New Haven.
