'Nevinson turned more and more to landscape subjects from 1917 onwards. In 1922 he had a motor caravan built to his own design for privacy and freedom' (The Times Weekly, April 1922). It was equipped as a mobile studio for sketching expeditions so that he could avoid the public notice he attracted by staying in hotels. He worked in Dorset, Cornwall, Kent and Sussex, producing contemplative and often sombre landscapes in oil, watercolour and etching' (see exhibition catalogue, C.R.W. Nevinson: Retrospective Exhibition of Paintings, Drawings and Prints, Cambridge, Kettle's Yard Gallery, 1988, p. 47).
'The Trundle' is a hill in West Sussex, the former site of a 15th century chapel and now a popular vantage point for racegoers overlooking Goodwood.
