The coronation procession at Battersea Bridge, June 1911
One of a series of four panel paintings celebrating the Coronation of King George V and Queen Mary on 22 June 1911, on Chelsea Bridge. This painting takes a bird's eye view looking down on the bridge. It shows the bridge gaily decorated with flags to commemorate the occasion. The flags are attached to the distinctive iron girders of the bridge. Although the procession did not come as far as Chelsea Bridge, the flags would have been visible in the distance. This painting focuses on showing people either heading towards the route of the procession or looking over the bridge towards the direction of Westminster Abbey. They are dressed in their best clothes and in the foreground two Chelsea Pensioners are shown surveying the scene. The buildings of the north bank can be seen beyond the girders of the bridge.
