On a rainy day I promiss to make up and return to the Embankment. Walking East towards Waterloo Bridge (right) meeting Emile Claus (1849-1924), the Belgian Impressionist refugee who had a studio on the Embankment. Like printmaker Henri Wils (1892-1967), the starting point of this series, he also fled Antwerp in 1914. Wils ending up in the Netherlands.
