    Various artists display their artwork on the railings of Victoria Embankment Gardens.

  • Description

    Victoria, London.

    L/S of river Thames from a high angle. St Paul's Cathedral and one of the London bridges seen in the distance. Camera tilts down to show Victoria Embankment Gardens where an open air art display is taking place.

    Various shots of people looking at the artwork which is hung on the railings. Artists mentioned are Mrs Ann Bulitis (sp?) of Hampstead and David Shepherd. I'm not sure if we see Ann, but David is seen hanging one of his paintings which features an aircraft flying above New York. C/U of the painting showing detail of office buildings and plane.

    L/S of young female artist sleeping on a bench. Various shots of paintings on display, the artists and customers - including a city businessman in bowler hat. Ends with a C/U of a painting of a vase of flowers - carnations - by Wilfred Walker.
