After his successful prints of towns and cities mainly in England, Stuart has turned to New England for his first American capriccio cityscape. The waterfront with its reminder of Boston's historic past, early districts such as North End and Beacon Hill are reflected in this composition. The importance of The Common and The Public Gardens on the life of the city together with many of the special buildings along the Freedom Trail are not forgotten.
The ubiquitous brick sidewalks appear, as do some of the gleaming buildings of the tightly drawn financial center. Copley can be glimpsed with Trinity Church and the stunning John Hancock Tower, and room had to be found for Fenway Park (including the 'Green Monster'). A little view of the Big Dig can be seen in the picture along with some of the special Bostonian landmarks such as; the ducklings, the swan boats, Hoods ice cream stand, and of course the Boston Tea Party.
Not everything is here, but the artist tries to create a feeling of this historic city within a single composition.
