Adolphe Valette Art Print- Hansom Cab at All Saints

An atmospheric, smog-filled, winter scene of a hansom cab parked on Grosvenor Square (All Saints). The street is Oxford Road, Manchester, seen from the corner of Devonshire Street. The cab and horse, parked at the curb to the left of the scene, are in profile. To the right, the horse has its head lowered to the ground as it feeds from a nosebag and has a small blanket draped over its back. A male figure stands on the back of the cab, leaning on its roof. Several figures make their way along the pavement between the cab and a wall crowned with an iron railing fence, beyond which are the silhouettes of bare trees standing in the grounds of the twin-towered Scottish Presbyterian Church (now demolished), its hazy form visible against a darkening sky.

Pierre Adolphe Valette (13 October 1876 – 18 April 1942) was a French Impressionist painter. His most acclaimed paintings are urban landscapes of Manchester, now in the collection of Manchester Art Gallery. Today, he is chiefly remembered as L. S. Lowry's tutor
