Watercolour; titled and dated '19.3.1900'
9 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches
Clifford - a friend of John Ruskin and, at one point, assistant to Burne-Jones - rarely exhibited his landscapes, showing mainly portraits instead; however, his involvement with the Church Army and their missionary work often gave him the opportunity to sketch his local surrounds, from Hawaiian volcanoes, to the hills of Pakistan. This watercolour of Rowfant in West Sussex was done in 1900, and belonged to the Reverend Sandford, who presumably knew Clifford through the Church Army.
