It was exhibited by the Art Cellar Edinburgh and the Atkinson Art Gallery Southport and retains the label verso. What also makes this of such interest is that the Scottish Colourist influences are being merged by the German Expressionist impasto which must have been accessible to Ronald. It is exceptionally well painted. The painting depicts Hamburg in 1935 at an important time in its history. The town and the river with boats are superbly captured.
