Print, Lithograph on paper, 292mm x 476mm
Turks boatyard by the Thames

Drawn for the Chatto & Windus Almanac, Spencer records a familiar scene at Turk’s boatyard by the bridge in Cookham. With mattress and cushions as in the oil painting ‘Swan Upping’ (1915-1919) and the addition of a hamper worthy of Kenneth Grahame’s Rat, a party of men and women prepare to enjoy a summer trip on the Thames.
