Graham Sutherland is best known as a war artist during the Second World War and for his designs for Coventry Cathedral. His early works were almost all etchings and engravings and his first landscape paintings date from the mid 1930s.

Painted in early peacetime, this semi-abstract landscape is more optimistic in mood than some of the scenes of desolation he painted. The forms have been simplified and colours intensified, especially the salmon-coloured sky.
