Harvesting, towards Morehampton

Painted, 1910

This is a view from the high ground north of the village of Breinton Common, looking north-westwards along the Wye valley. The hamlet of Moorhampton, near Norton Canon, was a railway halt which served the well-known Foxley estate, famous for its connections with the Picturesque movement. Brian has shown the sheaves of corn which have been stacked into small groups called 'stooks'. These would have been loaded onto the cart in the middle distance which is being pulled away by working horses. The rather heavy touches of purple paint in the sky in the upper right of the canvas appear to be unresolved.
