Provenance: From the Artist's Estate

In the summer of 1945 the Blisses made  their final move to Hillside Cottage in Windley village,....a scattering of houses along a single lane rising up through the Derwent Valley; this was to become Bliss's own Valley of Vision like Samuel Palmer’s in Shoreham.

This watercolour shows a view from the front door at Hillside Cottage.
