Ink, gouache, watercolour and pastel (1920). This
is Claughton Pellew at his best. There is all the accuracy of depiction
that a master wood engraver, such as he was, can bring to his subject,
but there is more than accuracy. Pellew manages to infuse his painting
with the kind of romantic intensity which is matched only by someone
like Ravilious in his work. In subject matter the two artists can also
be compared: there’s a narrative about agricultural work – the shepherd
and his flock, but there’s also the train (compare with Ravilious’s Westbury Horse (1939), for instance).
