Graham Sutherland, Form Over River, 1971-72

From the Tate Gallery:

This was based on studies made on the banks of Eastern Cleddau, Picton Park, in Pembrokeshire, in the summer of 1971. Sutherland described the making of this picture: ‘As with all my other ‘organic forms’ - especially those deriving from the country here, it was the result of a chance encounter. Always one in a thousand such encounters are meaningful to me or productive, but those which are, have in their structure a movement and an equilibrium which straight away finds a response in my own make up. The colour was used to emphasise the mood of the ambience but only in certain aspects was it the actual colour of the object’.
