Artwork description:

Original acrylic on panel by Alan Harris, British artist...
St. Mary-le-Bow Located in the Cheapside area is one of the most well-known parish churches in London, it has a long and tumultuous history, having been rebuilt several times over the centuries.
St Mary-le-Bow features heavily in local London legends. According to tradition, you cannot be a true Cockney unless you have been born within earshot of the sound of Bow Bells, and true Londoners, take great pride in this endorsement of their status. St Mary-le-Bow is the church whose ‘great bell’ is referred to in the famous old English nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons. Also, according to folklore, it was the bells of St Mary that persuaded Dick Whittington to turn back on his homeward journey, and to remain in London, the bells telling him to “Turn again Whittington, Lord Mayor of London”. He eventually becomes its Mayor in 1397. So this church and the peal of its bells are held in high affection by all Londoners, including me, who is proud to be born within the sound of Bow Bells.
A superb gift for Londoners and art lovers alike.
Alan works with a variety of mediums as oils, watercolours, pastel, mixed media, sculptures and engages the viewer with atmospheric detail.
The painting' size is 11x14, is sent framed, with a black frame, ready to hang.
