The Morning Ride

A glimpse at a moment in time when youth and hope were one. Florence Carter Wood is painted by Alfred Munnings at the Newlyn artist colony in Cornwall.


Alfred Munnings reading aloud outside on the grass (circa 1911). Harold Knight, R.A. (1874-1961). Oil on canvas. 

Munnings (English, Newlyn School, 1878–1959) was known as one of England’s finest painters of horses, and as an outspoken enemy of Modernism.

Knight was a close friend. There were profound changes in Knight’s palette, richer, more colorful, a clarity of light and a growing distance from the gritty realism of his early years. Portraiture, figures and interiors were preferred.
