Wood Engraving (1933). Original size 20.3 x
27.3cm. Eric Gill’s comment on Leighton’s ‘Farmer’s Year’ prints is
nowhere more apt than for this print: ‘Bewick and Raverat’ wrote Gill,
‘have done little engravings that are big in spirit, but no one in our
time has succeeded better than Clare Leighton in penetrating the breath
of the life of the earth on a scale so grand’. (Gill’s remark can be
found in Gollancz’s publicity leaflet for ‘The Farmer’s Year’, 1933).
