Derwent Lees

The Blue Pool

c. 1910-1914
This small painting was made in Dorset on the south coast of England, and is typical of the landscapes of Derwent Lees. Applying the paint in a rapid, sketchy manner, he captured the essence of this sun-drenched scene, looking across the Blue Pool at the chalky downs of the coastline.
