Hermann Israel Fechenbach was a German-born British Jewish artist, who began working in the German modern realist style of ‘Die Neue Sachlichkeit’. When the present work was painted in 1954, Fechenbach was living in Colet Gardens in London, and was beginning to receive more commissions and exhibitions after being displaced and interned during the Second World War.
