Views of the Downs
Though Charles Knight travelled widely across Britain in search of subjects to paint, he never tired of depicting his home ground around Ditchling, Sussex, near the east end of the South Downs. He used it as something of an open air laboratory for his technical experiments and, as exemplified here, produced many vital images, both of its undulating terrain and the skies above it.
