N05431 SADDLEBACK FROM WALLTHWAITE 1912
 
Not inscribed.
Canvas, 27×36 (69×91·5).
Presented by Sir Edward Marsh 1943.
Coll: Purchased by Sir Edward Marsh from the N.E.A.C. 1912.
Exh: N.E.A.C., winter 1912 (167), as ‘Saddleback from Wallthwaite’; Contemporary British Art, Whitechapel Art Gallery, October–December 1929 (389), as ‘Kentdale’, lent by Edward Marsh.

Painted on the spot in 1912. Wallthwaite is a lonely farm on the moor, north of Helvellyn, where the artist was staying at the time. N05431 was wrongly entitled in the 1947 catalogue of the British School as ‘Kentdale’ and in The British School: A Concise Catalogue of 1953 as ‘Dentdale’, and has now been correctly identified by the artist.
