It looks delightful. I love her art.

Cornflower

Yes, her work suggests a particular connection between herself and her subjects.

[Romance] ... It can survive the invasion of the tractor and the radio. It feeds upon an attitude of mind Indeed it can (and should) but I would also argue strongly that it can also be seen in the "invasion" of the tractor and the radio (and the MRI scanner and the Large Hadron Collider etc.) too! :-)

Cornflower

That is true!

Oh dear, my wish list gets longer...

Cornflower

So does mine: when I went over to Little Toller to get the links for Clare Leighton's books I saw that they will shortly be publishing Dorothy Hartley's 1939 'Made in England' (about the people and crafts of the cottage industries in England), so that's made my list a little longer.

Some years ago there was an exhibition at the Pallant Gallery in Chichester of Claire Leighton woodcuts. The detail was incredible and made even more visible with the aid of a magnifying glass thoughtfully put out for visitors.

Cornflower

That must have been worth seeing.
