Frederick Gore The Cinder Path 1912
The Cinder Path
shows what could be part of a recently harvested field, indicating
that it is also set in late summer. In contrast to A Gloucestershire
Landscape, the colours are much hotter, red in particular has
been emphasised and exaggerated. This painting does not have the
same immediate English feel as A Gloucestershire Landscape
and reflects the influence upon Gore of French artists such as Matisse
and the Fauves.
Spencer Cows at Cookham 1936
Another English scene, Cows at Cookham is one of many paintings that Spencer set in his beloved home village of Cookham. Set in late spring, the horse chestnut tree in the background is in full bloom. The energy of spring is reflected in the playful babies crawling away, and the lolloping cows following the cow girl up the embankment behind.
