Portrait of Silbury Hill in May

This contemporary painting is a great way to show how features in, and characteristics of, the WHS inspire both realist and English surreal painters to create works that are rooted in the pastoral tradition. Inshaw captures not only a record of the physical reality of the monument, but also something of the uncertainty and strangeness of a thousands-year-old structure still present in the modern world.
