Artist Name Dennis Gilbert (b. 1922)
Title Richmond Bridge London Landscape
Description This lovely city landscape oil painting is by noted British artist Dennis Gilbert. Painted in 1970 from an elevated perspective, the composition is of Richmond Bridge, spanning the River Thames. The large building on the right of the bridge in the foreground is now the Pitcher and Piano pub. Numerous figures can be seen going about their daily lives in the sunshine. Beyond that the Thames flows under the bridge with several boats and rowers and a surprisingly green and tree populated London sprawls on in the background. This is a charming detailed painting of a grand old bridge and its surrounding making London look very appealing. 

Richmond Bridge is an 18th-century stone arch bridge that crosses the River Thames at Richmond, connecting the two halves of the present-day London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It was designed by James Paine and Kenton Couse. The bridge, which is Grade I listed, was built between 1774 and 1777, as a replacement for a ferry crossing which connected Richmond town centre on the east bank with its neighbouring district of East Twickenham to the west.
