Additional Information about the Print

One of the artist’s earliest pastorals.

Sutherland was open to many influences and in 1973 made reference to his early student work including “pastiches of Rembrandt, Dürer and Whistler”. His discovery of Palmer determined the character of his plates from 1925-28. By 1929 he was moving in a different direction and with the exception of a single commissioned plate in 1938, he stopped etching in 1931.
