Dear Holly,

Thank you so much for putting this lovely picture on view. My friend and I spent a wonderful day in the Gallery. Having seen the lovely colection of Corots today, I think one can see where Clausen got at least some of his inspiration for the somewhat silvery, ethereal appearance.

Kind Regards

What a shame that this wonderful plein air picture is not currently on view. Much in a similar vein to many of the Glascow Boys' works, Clausen was both an inspiration and a great supporter of this group. Any chance of having on view for Easter weekend?
