This work in watercolour and chalk shows an archway in the continental town of Fonte. Bone’s first prolonged trip abroad was spent in Italy between 1910 and 1912. He travelled to Holland the following year and from the 1920s to 1930s he visited Spain, France, Turkey and Sweden, producing both etchings and watercolours during his trips. There are towns called Fonte in both Italy and Spain, therefore we do not have an exact date for this work as it could have been produced at any time between 1910 and 1930 during Bone’s travels. Bone has made effective use of chiaroscuro in his depiction of the shady archways, contrasting the darkened areas of the arches with the shafts of sunlight falling in between.
