Fragment of King’s Parade – print
Fine Art Print – 48 x 33 cm
Fine art print based on watercolour painting of King’s Parade in Cambridge with Great St Mary’s Church in the background.
King’s Parade is one of the most iconic streets in the historic city of Cambridge, England. It is renowned for its stunning architecture, lively atmosphere, and rich cultural heritage. This art print depicts a fragment of King’s Parade, showcasing several of the street’s most notable buildings.
The print is a mix of reality and fantasy. The surreal and fantastical elements add an imaginative twist to the traditional cityscape, with flying punts and bicycles, people having picnics and playing on rooftops, and an empty street level that seems to suggest all the action is happening above. The painting’s depiction of life and business taking place on higher levels is a reflection of the street’s history. In the past, many of the buildings on King’s Parade were used as colleges and academic institutions. Today, many of them house shops, cafes, and restaurants, which often occupy upper levels to take advantage of the views of the street.
Overall, this fine art print of King’s Parade in Cambridge is a unique and imaginative interpretation of this historic street, combining reality and fantasy in a delightful way. It captures the spirit and vibrancy of King’s Parade, with its stunning architecture, lively atmosphere, and rich cultural heritage.
