Corn stooks, Warham

Painted, 1908

The countyside near his home in Broomy Hill, Hereford, provided subject matter which naturally appealed to Brian. This restful scene of rural activity is dominated by the corn stooks in the summer morning. The soft treatment of the sky contrasts with the busy and textured handling of the foreground. The triangular motif of the stooks is used to create an irregular pattern. The focal point of the composition is the understated silhouette of the hoses pulling the binder on the skyline.
