Graham Sutherland (1903-1980) was a prominent 20th-century English landscape artist, who was inspired by the etchings of Samuel Palmer. Sutherland's earliest works, done while he was a student at Goldsmith's College in the early 1920s, were images of pastoral calm. However, his early success was ended by the 1929 slump, which destroyed the market for contemporary prints. His work went through a transformation around this time, and his landscapes became threatening, sinister and tragic. He achieved maturity and made his first significant contribution to English landscape art with "Pastoral" (1930) and "The Garden" (1931).
