Refugees in my Studio was painted early in the Second World War (black out curtains are hanging at the window). This is Fred Ewell’s studio in Trinity Lane, Beverley, the ‘refugees’ have left Hull for safety because of the bombing. Elwell himself is seen in the mirror sitting at his easel. This painting is on the BBC/PCF site but seeing it ‘in real life’ at Beverley for the first time is a bit overwhelming (it’s very large and incredibly striking; particularly with the present refugee crisis).
