Beatrice Parsons spent time in Algiers attracted to the quality of the light, the flora and, no doubt, an escape from an English winter. Titled 'January in Algiers' and verso 'No. 27, In a convent garden in Algiers', this convent's orange grove certainly looks a peaceful place to be. One imagines the dappled shade provided welcome relief from the dry heat for the artist who painted in citrus and sea scented air serenaded by the song of cicada. In a letter to the Times following her death in 1955 a friend wrote: "It was one of the greatest pleasures of a garden to see her painting in it because of her understanding of what she saw, her tranquillity and serenity blended perfectly with what she was doing." Seems to us this painting epitomises those traits. Signed and titled lower right, in excellent condition, glazed with AR70 glass, and with Dicksee and Co., 1906, and Doddleswell and Doddleswells (exhibition) labels.
