Madonna clutching the Christchild in a landscape setting reflecting the South Downs.

The Madonna portrays an energy, almost an anxiety, of an early tussle between tradition and modernity, between faith and fact. Jones lived in Ditchling in the craft community founded by Eric Gill.


Gift from artist to Eric Gill's daughter Petra during their engagement; estate of the late Petra Tegetmeier.
