Derbyshire Dales

Location: Derbyshire, UK

Subject: Landscape

Medium: Oils

Date: 1900s

Signature: Arthur Hammond

Dimensions: 34 cm x 60 cm

This oil painting of the Derbyshire Dales shows how Knighton-Hammond can, in conjunction with this variety of brushstroke and texture of paint, adopt a greater intensity in his colours. He also uses brushstrokes to evoke the shimmering light reflecting off the water. The atmospheric blue background has a church tower silhouetted against the sky. The decorative foliage is rich in form and colour. The cattle give a sense of scale and movement to the composition.
