IN LONDON’S FOG
See Jenn's Portfolio
In the 19th century, London was known for its persistent, dense fog. The fog, saturated in coal-smoke, was compounded by the rising industry of the era, turning the fog into not only a mark of geography, but an emblem of an era. As the fog filled the streets of the city and entered homes and shops, it seeped into the minds of civilians, artists, and writers and is forever immortalized in the letters, literature, and art of the Victorian era. As if standing in the thick of London’s dense fog, Jenn Williamson creates atmospheric abstract paintings that transport viewers onto the banks of the Thames in Victorian London.
