This picturesque 19th-century landscape painting by British artist Thomas Pyne (1843–1935) depicts an attractive view across a woodland clearing towards distant hills. It evokes the quiet tranquillity of a warm Summer’s day.
Pyne has selected a composition that carries interest by virtue of a row of diagonal trees. Descending in height, they guide the eye towards a horizon rendered in near-violet tones. And if we explore the clearing further, several sheep wander and graze - nicely rendered with weight and realism.
