Moltino adopted a style very close to that of the great Joseph Turner and his work was often believed to be that of his more famous contemporary. Francis was probably descended from a Venetian family, but he was certainly working in London by the mid 1840's. He lived at Little Russell Street in Covent Garden and later in Pimlico. Moltino has a Continental feel to his work as his brushwork is more 'free' and his palette more pastel-coloured than the tight craftsmanship of the Victorian age. This painting is believed to be the one exhibited by Moltino at the RBA in 1866, entitled then “A view to the east of old Blackfriars Bridge and St Pauls”
