About this artwork

The figure at the centre of ‘Woman in a Landscape’ appears to have merged with her surroundings. Based on the title, we might guess that the pointed forms on the left of the picture are a set of hills in the background, although they equally appear to be entering or exiting the mouth and nose of the woman. The aggressive lines drawn by Douthwaite reveal her sometimes aggressive image-making process: ‘Occasionally the paper tears because I draw like a savage’. As this is a lithograph the image will have first been drawn onto a stone or metal plate before going through the printing process.
