Product story

This book has been selected and reviewed by Michael Prodger for the RA Magazine: Issue 131 Summer 2016.

Light- intangible, elusive, vital - is the very stuff of art. Here, during a series of walks along the Sussex Downs, Wroe meditates on its protean qualities and uses and insights of a series of painters - from Fra Angelico to Turner and Ravilious - to tease out its nature. She switches from thoughts about an English lane to Coleridge, Thoreau, Samuel Palmer, larks, ragwort and Ravilious's taste in poetry, in effortless and beguiling succession.
