River with Poplars, c1912, Roger Fry, oil on wood, 565 x 708 mm., England. "painted from the bridge at Angles sur l’Anglin near Poitiers in France... Fry had built an aesthetic theory largely based on the way Cézanne constructed his pictures. The style of this painting is like Cézanne in the suppression of detail, and in the organisation of the colouring into clear masses. The shapes are deliberately made to look solid, even the clouds and the banks of reeds in the river."
Roger Fry, of the Bloomsbury Group. River with Poplars
