In his descriptive landscapes of the early 1950s Reynolds aimed to reveal the essential vitality of the natural world. In this painting, the plants and trees are transformed into anthropomorphic presences. Standing among these dark and looming forms is the solitary figure of the keeper.
Reynolds’s careful balancing of the muted, earthy colours and his measured arrangement of forms create an eerie stillness that adds to mystery of this secret world.
