|Title||Entrance to Hastings from the London Road|
|Collection||Hastings Museum and Art Gallery|
|Artist||Aglio, Agostino Maria (Italian painter and scenographer, 1777-1857, active in Great Britian)|
The London road recedes into the middle-ground, directing the eye into this view of Hastings. On either side hills rise up, framing the view of the sea in the middle distance.
The painting reflects a growing interest in depicting local landscapes at the beginning of the nineteenth century that can also be seen in the works of English artists such as Constable and Gainsborough.
