Spencer Gore

Landscape with Pond

c. 1913
From 1905, British artists could discover French avant-garde painting through a series of exhibitions in London. Manet and the Post-Impressionists (1910–11) had a particular impact on Spencer Gore. The influence of Cézanne, Pissarro, and Seurat can be seen in Gore’s light palette, divided brush strokes sun-infused scene and in the leisure activity of the boy sailing his toy boat. Gore returned to this setting – a pond in Richmond Park, London – in a number of his late works.
