Anthony Rossiter RWA (1926-2000)

Night Nurse at Desk

date unknown

oil on canvas

119th RWA Annual Exhibition: purchased 1971


The Nurse here is seen in a cluttered workspace, as though she will not be able to stop working. It is as if she is the light in the painting that is otherwise dark. It resonates deeply at this time, as we consider NHS and care staff who have been under such workload pressure and upon whom we most depend in the darkness of night.
