Sutherland first visited Pembrokeshire in 1934 and recalled being fascinated by “the deep green valleys and the rounded hills and the whole structure, simple and complex” and felt that he was “as much part of the earth as my features were part of me”.
Sutherland worked to convey the intellectual and emotional essence of the Pembrokeshire landscape by means of dramatic shifts in light and unnaturalistic colouring.
