Wooded Landscape

LL 3726


Although many of Stark's characteristic motifs and stylistic mannerisms are present in this painting, such as the light hatchings on tree trunks and the curving, wide-rutted track with rather dumpy figures, there is a coarseness of touch which suggests that this painting is an imitation. The handling of the foliage on the tree immediately to the right of the track is strongly reminiscent of the work of Joseph Paul, who produced many imitation Norwich School paintings.
