Robert Bevan. Two Ash Trees. 1924. Painted at Mount Stephen's Cross, Luppitt, Devon. "Just before the end Mr. Bevan had begun to soften his style by getting more variety of tone into his foliage, and by rounding the masses towards the spectator, so that less attention was drawn to the edges, and of this "The Two Ash Trees" and "On Luppitt Common" in the present exhibition are good examples."
