"Packhorse Bridge" - 1938

Exhibited at RPS

SDJ's Notes:

"At first sight it may not appear so, but this rural scene is composed of several 'S' curves, the largest one being formed diagonally across by the bridge itself.

The incidental light has suitably brought out the texture and the ruggedness of the old bridge, which stands out against the shadowed part of the building behind.

The two boys going up the bridge lend'life' and interest to the scene. All the strongest 'light and dark' tones happen around a strong point in the picture-space and the boys themselves have been caught in a position of sinuous curves and movement"
