Getting out and about with British painter Charles Sims (1873-1928). The son of a costume manufacturer, Sims studied art in Britain and then at the Académie Julian in Paris. After losing his son in the first world war, he switched to abstract apocalyptic backdrops. The images in the post are all from before that time when his backgrounds were mostly sunlit and cheery.
