Coll: Montague Shearman by 1921.

Painted c. 1915 at Tonerspuddle, Dorset, while working on an abortive project to decorate the village hall at Bryantspuddle (letter from the artist, 18 October 1952). The artist agrees that this is probably the work exhibited with the London Group in 1916 (letter of 12 April 1958); works entitled ‘Landscape in Dorset’ were exhibited with the N.E.A.C., winter 1916 (9), and the London Group, April–May 1917 (73). At one time catalogued as ‘Berkshire Landscape’.
