About this artwork

Fry is best-known as an art historian, critic and curator. In 1912, he organised the second Post-Impressionist exhibition that showcased the work of a new generation of British artists who were responding to modern French art. It was around this time that he returned to his own artistic practice. Largely inspired by Paul Cézanne, whose work he championed in Britain, Fry depicts this rural scene as a series of sturdy geometric shapes.
