This watercolour painting depicts a group of people playing tennis in two courts in Battersea Park, London. James Wallace exhibited a number of views of London parks at the turn of the 20th Century such as ‘Autumn in Kensington Gardens’ and ‘In the Park’. This tiny sketch, dating from1904, was made in the park and was slipped in with a letter back home to The Quintet – a group of friends in Berwick, Wallace’s home town. It shows Londoners enjoying vigorous exercise, from a pretty young girl in the foreground to an energetic male player reaching for an ambitious overhead shot. A further black and white drawing made in 1900 by Wallace is entitled ‘Tennis in London’.
