'It was a slight thing that in "The Cheshire Plain",
"The Seed Roller," "Harvesters," one could trace the inspiration to J F Millet or Paul Potter or Claude, for in each was its own beauty, and that beauty was essentially English. In the second series issued, Mr Tunnicliffe showed in "The White Horse," with its plastic circumstance, a determination to express his own conception'

Apollo, 1927, page 263)
