Additional images

This painting is dated circa 1960 – last years of Robert’s career. At the height of his maturity the painting from this period has signs of a “late style” – more eccentric color, more intense handling of the materials and a more emotive content. In this landscape painting the earlier solitude of rural images is imbued with the urgency that suggests the momentary rather than timeless.

Sandra Paikowsky wrote of the works of this period that “the landscape has been torn apart with an intensity equal to the sense of order that he had imposed on images of the area decades earlier.” In this dynamic painting, slashes of green define patches of grass and fluid brush-strokes give the impression of turbulent movement in land and sky. In this painting, Roberts’s completely assured handling of his subject is clear – in the words of art critic Robert Ayre, “the vision of a man who could paint swiftly and yet true only because he had spent years in slow, penetrating contemplation.”
