Date made: 1921

Artist: Knox, Archibald

Description: A bleak and atmospheric watercolour landscape by Archibald Knox (1864-1933) depicting a farmhouse surrounded by trees in Santon, Isle of Man. Unlike most of his watercolour sketches which are untitled and unidentified views of the Manx landscape, Knox identified this as 'Santan' and signs and dates it 'VIII 1921, A. Knox'. Although the central detail are the trees, Knox's watercolour sketches can be seen as exercises in capturing the light and a single moment in time. The artist is said to have painted his watercolour scenes in a few hours or less, but that he would also sit for hours waiting for the exact light and cloud formations that he wanted to paint.
