About artist/note:

Doris McCarthy was an inveterate traveller and contentedly spent time sketching in remote locations. Nonetheless, this painting is less a travelogue than it is a record of Doris’ feel for the land. It is, as William Moore contends, “about the perceptual experience of the place.”

Literature:

William Moore, Doris McCarthy: Feast of Incarnation, Gallery Stratford, 1991, page 10.
