Additional Information about the Print

Inspired by Palmer’s 1825 sepia ink and gum arabic drawing Early Morning (in the Ashmolean), Boyd imitates the mushroom-shaped tree and the long evening shadows, but makes changes too. The rabbit is omitted (but appears in another print) and replaced by two birds, one with a snail on a stone. (Palmer has two birds, but beak to beak, in the foreground of the Ashmolean’s The Valley with a Bright Cloud, 1925) Instead of the small half-hidden group of people beneath the tree, a single figure sits at work on his laptop computer.
