This gouache painting comes from the middle period of Reynolds’ career which began around 1958 when he switched from neo-romantic landscape painting to a visual language based on abstract structures and forms. It could arguably be seen as a transitional work – the vertical and horizontal shapes and sombre colours might be suggestive of a winter landscape – though it is a clearly looking more to principles and structures typical of Paul Klee and his stress on balance and harmony.
