This painting shows a view in summertime with deep shadow in the foreground and a dense clump of trees beside a stream, seen from an elevated perspective. Trees lean to the left in a strong wind. Beyond, rises a small steep hill most of which is tilled for cultivation except for the summit which is left undisturbed. On it stands a small lone tree. John Nash, the brother of Paul Nash, is one of the most important landscape painters of the twentieth century. He had no formal artistic training and, besides painting, he was also a plantsman and book illustrator. He lived on the Stour Valley on the Suffolk/Essex border, a landscape made famous by two of Britain's most important landscape painters: Gainsborough and Constable. Nash was not inspired by the landscape paintings of other artists however.
