A picture from 1922 by George Clausen, whom we met in the last post. A road near Duton Hill in Essex, where Clausen had had a country home since 1917. Not a high resolution image, but better when enlarged. There is some residual Victorian sentimentality in this landscape, but the early sky turning into day, the still intense frost in the field, the fog hanging over the road are as skillful as elements in any winter scene by Monet.
The art market has not yet understood late Clausen, judging by the difference in price between a work such as this and some of his work of the 1880s, especially paintings showing peasant girls. I missed an opportunity to buy this. Everything would have suited my main room, down to the red signature.
