Spencer Gore, The Fig Tree, 1912

Gore often painted the view looking out of the windows of his lodgings, including several different compositions of this fig tree in various seasons of the year. The painting is dominated by the diagonal shadow cast from the building onto the garden, which meets the garden walls running across the picture at opposing angles. The figure in the foreground might be Gore’s wife, Mollie.T00028_10.jpg
