Beyond it, the other side of the valley, with a firmly-painted pattern of fields, is gradually lost in the distance under a delicately-painted sky. The picture is broadly painted in strong colours, including striking lilacs and pinks, and is characteristic of the work of Bevan during his membership of the Camden Town group.
Son of the artist.
