This work was formerly in the collection of Coventry College of Education; it was presented to the College through the Beaumanoir Bequest. Although technically a landscape, the title of the painting refines the subject of this painting to the light that falls across the Downs. The Downs are chalk uplands in Southern England, primarily in Sussex, Dorset, Berkshire and Oxfordshire. They are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
