Marianne Nix has been a Hampstead resident for a very long time, and sometimes finds her inspiration there. This oil painting on canvas is one her hampstead-inspired artworks, and shows the reflection of the surrounding plants onto the water of one of the ponds, near the Viaduct.

Hampstead Heath in North London today exists as a natural haven for wild life and the enjoyment of green spaces. In the 19th century, a local landowner and developer named Thomas Maryon Wilson wanted to turn Hampstead Heath into a private estate. He built the viaduct as part of a planned entrance into his estate. Local residents were aghast at Wilson's plans, and launched one of the first land preservation campaigns in Britain. The fight continues today.
