After the Japanese invasion of China in 1937 many people in Britain expressed sympathy and support towards China. After the outbreak of the Pacific War the United Aid to China Fund was launched. From 32 March to 25 may 1943, the Artists Aid China Exhibition, organized by Mrs I G Tennyson and under the auspices of the Central Institute of Art and Design was held in Manchester Square. Over 700 hundred contemporary paints and sculptures were on display and the artists donated 50 percent of their profits to the Lady Cripps United Aid to China Fund.

Mrs Jean Douglas Anderson was a London based artist. Between 1916-1967 she exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, Royal Society of British Artists and elsewhere. The current picture is a view from the artist’s home at 14 Hyde Park Square, looking across the gardens of the square to towards the junction with Clarendon Place.
