About artist/note:

Molly Lamb Bobak lends the invigoration of her animated crowd scenes to the dazzling, jewel-like white of the buildings of Algiers. Built on the slopes of the Sahel Hills, the city waterfalls into the bay below. The harbour, nestled like a natural amphitheatre in the landscape, is framed by the scarlet tint of the ship’s deck.
