Catalogue Note

According to a label on the reverse, this delightful plein-air oil was included in Munnings’ retrospective at the Royal Academy in 1956 which included sixty landscapes and led his biographer to state that: 'His pure landscapes would of themselves have made a reputation... posterity will honour not the facile remembrancer of briefly celebrated horses and the vanishing panoply of the hunt, but the artist who painted the immemorial glory of the gorse on Ringland Hills.' (Reginald Pound, The Englishman; A Biography of Sir Alfred Munnings, 1962, pp.212-3).
