Oil on hardboard, 30×42 (76×107).
Presented by R. D. S. May 1953.
Coll: Purchased by R. D. S. May from the Redfern Gallery 2 January 1953.
Exh: Redfern Gallery, February–March 1953 (21, repr.).
This, and another painting of the same theme, ‘Keeper of the Dark Copse I’, also shown at the Redfern Gallery Exhibition, 1953 (5), were completed in November 1952 (letter from the artist, 1 September 1956). The inscription on N06149 would seem to imply that the painting was begun in 1951.
