A beautifully coloured, paired down almost abstract Julian Trevelyan image of Chiswick Eyot, a river island on the Thames overlooked by Chiswick Mall, where Julian Trevelyan and his wife Mary Fedden set up their Durham Wharf studio in the 1950s.

The naturalist CJ Cornish wrote in 1902 that the river bank of Chiswick Mall beside the eyot had once been a 'famous fishery'; he recorded that 'perhaps the last' salmon was caught between the eyot and Putney in 1812, and expressed the hope that if the 'purification' of the river continued, the salmon might return. He noted that people had 'taken' the wild irises from the eyot, but that marsh marigold, camomile, comfrey, ragged robin, buttercups and many composites still grew there. [from Wikipedia]
