In the summer of 1912 Gore stayed at fellow artist Harold Gilman’s house in the new town of Letchworth, Hertfordshire. Here he painted The Cinder Path. Letchworth was one of the new Garden Cities – Welwn Garden City and Brentham Garden Suburb were others built at about the same time. The idea for these cities was initiated by Ebenezer Howard, and the aim was to combine the best of city with country living. In The Cinder Path we see this fusion: houses dot the horizon and fields are interspersed. This was accepted for the influential Second Post-Impressionist exhibition initiated by Fry in the same year of its creation, 1912, and with its strength of colour and stylised forms The Cinder Path has all the hallmarks of the best of Gore’s work.
