Many of Nicholson's late reliefs have place names in their titles. In some the reference between relief and place name is clear, in others the allusion is less obvious. The artist added the titles only after completing the works and the connexion between the two was always highly personal, and even at times frivolous. This work is not a representation of the landscape, but rather an evocation of an experience or awareness of it described in colour, form and texture.
