    The present landscape, which must date to c. 1908, can be placed in the sequence of works produced at East’s Cotswold studio at Upper Swell, on the outskirts of Stow-on-the-Wold. Its configuration of stone walls and barns makes it directly comparable to the more finished On the Tewkesbury Road (Detroit Institute of Arts). KMc.
