N A Trent was not only a sculptor. He was also a painter in oils. I have a painting by him signed N A Trent and dated 1914. The subject is a river scene with a sailing barge and four chimneys of a power station in the background. It is well painted and shows the influence of Whistler's river scenes. The identity of the power station is uncertain as it does not look like the modern Battersea. Did Lots Road have four chimneys? As Trent had a studio at 1 Beaufort Street, it is very likely that he painted this picture from observation of the nearby river scene.

What can you tell us?close

There are occasions when we are unsure of the identity of a sitter or artist, their life dates, occupation or have not recorded their family relationships. Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
