This is Pinwell’s most ambitious historical or mythical subject. It portrays the romantic story of a 12th-century crusader, Gilbert à Becket, who is rescued by a Saracen woman. She falls in love with Becket and follows him to England. She is shown trudging towards London with the Thames estuary behind her. Pinwell captures her isolation and vulnerability as she is taunted by urchins and gazed upon with suspicion. Pinwell’s career as a popular watercolourist was cut short by his early death.
