"This lovely painting is part of Jeni Robertson's "Umbrella series" which featured in the "Inner Seasons" exhibition at the Painters' Gallery. Throughout this series the artist uses the umbrella as a symbol of isolation and protection. Her figures are shielded from the world around them, faceless in a world blurred by rain. There is a mysterious quality to these paintings which are atmospheric with a good use of light, colour and composition. This painting in particular is one of our favourites; the luminous urban lights shine out of the darkness and the figure is, of course, concealed in the shadows beneath her umbrella, protected from the elements and isolated from society. The colours are beautiful and cool, and even though it is a picture of the night, it is a happy painting."
