In the early 1920s, Ben Nicholson and his wife, Winifred, were staying with her parents at Boothby, near Brampton, while looking for their own home in Cumberland. This landscape was painted in 1922, two years before the couple moved into Banks Head, a farmhouse overlooking Cold Fell, where they lived until 1931.

This view of Cold Fell shows a spontaneous and direct approach to landscape, using loose brushstrokes and flat swathes of colour to depict the pattern of fields and hedges.
