I saw that exhibition and he was placing his pictures under those of Malton... bad move, it just makes Malton's look even better...
His attempts at drawing modern buildings show his lack of draughtmanship - no fussy detail to hide the fact that the perspective is wrong.....
artisically its twee non-challenging art

It's so under-rated in the city - only because it's so close to the road that no one appreciates it to the extent of set pieces like the Custom House etc.
The carving of the side facade facing the Newcomen Bank is especially fine.
On 'Restoration' last week there was a massive shell of a country house featured that had a side facade that was almost identical to that of City Hall.
What happened to all of the Victoriana that was removed in the restoration - the CC said it would find a new home for it - which includes joinery, and loads of high quality stone doorcases and pediments etc

(The interesting thing about the Malton comparisons was how little his chosen views had actually changed!!)
