Munnings would spend several months at a time with his wife in a house rented from the local farmer and explore the surrounding countryside on horseback: 'What rides! and what respite, resting by a running stream at the bottom of a far-off combe, eating food out of a paper bag, and afterwards drinking from the stream' (The Finish, p.50). In the present work we sense the great pleasure of such a setting - a young boy fishing on the bank, the sound of the stream, a blue sky and dove-coloured clouds - rendered in bold, energetic brushstrokes and flashes of colour.

Description:
Sir Alfred James Munnings, PRA, RWS (British, 1878-1959) Cattle grazing before hay waggons in a landscape signed 'A. J. Munnings' (lower left), watercolour 22.5 x 33cm (8 7/8 x 13in). Footnotes Although the present lot is not apparently dated, it appears to be an early work, bearing close comparrison to two works offered in Bonhams' Modern British Irish and East Anglian Art auction of 19 November 2013, lots 65, 66, dated 1901, 1899 respectively. The foreground regression is cleverly achieved with punctuated wildflowers, the same trick of perspective is used to good effect in the foreground of one of Munnings' first great Royal Academy pictures 'A Suffolk Horse Fair' of 1901.

Provenance Richard Green, London Acquired from the above, October, 1969 Exhibited New York, Wildenstein, Alfred J. Munnnings: Images of the Turf and Field, April 28 - June 3, 1983, no. 8 (as Crossing the Ford: Shrimp the Gypsy Boy and Two Horses) Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, Brandy Wine River Museum, Alfred J. Munnings from Regional Collections, June 7 - September 1, 2008 Munnings held a lifelong fascination with the effects of light and water and he returned to the ford theme frequently from 1906-1911. Using his own horses and grooms as models, Munnings would alter the number of horses and ponies, change the groupings, viewpoints and locations which enabled him to explore numerous artistic possibilities. As the artist explained, "the mere sight of these ponies, coming or going gave me fresh pictures. Like a game of chess, there was no end to it" (Alfred Munnings, An Artist's Life, Bungay, Suffolk, 1950, p. 238). As ponies splashed through the water, the movement broke the lines in the current which, in turn, generated swirling ripples and a dance of flickering light and color. In the present work, the water reflects the unseen grey sky which casts a blue-grey hue on the ponies' coats. Munnings carried the tone throughout the painting making the work a cohesive whole. Crossing the Ford shows Munnings' favorite groom leading the horses through the water. In An Artist's Life, Munnings describes him as a young man who "slept under the caravan with the dogs, and had no family of his own, no family ties, no parents that he knew. This son of the wild went by the name of Shrimp... little did I dream that he would one day become for me an indispensible model, an inspiring rogue, and an annoying villain... He was a paintable figure... and the best model I ever had" (Munnings, p. 207, 211, 217).
