‘Boathouse at Chiswick‘ greeting cards capture Quintin Boat Club. It is a rowing club based at the University of Westminster Boathouse on the River Thames, close to Chiswick Bridge in Chiswick, West London. Formally constituted in 1907, it evolved out of the Regent Street Polytechnic’s rowing club which was started in 1879.
See the original painting ‘Boathouse at Chiswick’ by Rod Pearce here.
Rod Pearce is highly acclaimed British artist. Rod was born in 1942 and lives in London. He takes a great deal of inspiration for his work from his travels and city surroundings. The Thames, local common or well-known Venetian settings are subjects he might explore in his discovery of atmosphere and light. Each work is a self-portrait of the artist in which he allows the viewer the opportunity to share with him a moment of discovery.
