Catalogue Note

'The echo of a distant shot rings out crystal clear across the rolling hillsides and alarms the covey of blackgame, quietly feeding this autumn morning in the shelter of a heathery hollow. Hurriedly they rise and wing their way across the slopes, heading for a distant clump of birch trees behind which they swing and dip into the welcoming shelter of their moorland retreat, there to hide till danger passes.' (John Southern, Thorburn's Landscape, The Major Natural History Paintings, 1981, p.42)
