Overhanging branches shade a passage through the beech grove at Gunton Park, Norfolk. The artist, John Middleton, was a member of the Norwich School; the first provincial art movement established in Britain. Working primarily in watercolor, his paintings were praised for their “charming use of light and shade.” The oils he produced later in life, of which this is an outstanding example, have received less attention. Like many watercolorists of the 19th century, he may have been responding to the art market’s growing demand for finer detail, or what his contemporaries would have regarded as more “finished” work.
