Additional Information about the Print

The single pastoral wood engraving in this exhibition, Tute’s landscape recalls that it was Blake’s small wood engraved illustrations to Virgil’s Eclogues that had so moved and inspired Palmer and his fellow Ancients in the Shoreham period.

In Tute’s Landscape with Bather, the bucolic theme, the rounded forms of the landscape and sheep, and the proliferation of details of specific plants and seed heads, grasses as well as his ‘signature’ dandelion puffballs, speak directly of his admiration for Palmer and Calvert.

Tute has commented on his work’s “neo-romantic flavour with an emphasis on design and drawing”. “Such an approach might be seen as akin to poetry's place in the universe of literature.”
