Provenance: Roger Folley; Alasdair Dunbar; Hammer Mill Oast Collection

Typical of many of the sheets forming part of Dunbar’s residual studio - the Hammer Mill Oast Collection - discovered half a century and more after her 1960 death, one-off studies like this sketch of a man carrying a hay-tedder or similar farming implement, tease the Dunbar scholar because there are no exterior references and there is very little by which to identify it. Probably this is a sketch, subsequently unused, for Dunbar’s pen and ink illustrations for Derek Chapman’s A Farm Dictionary (Evans Bros., London, 1953).

We are grateful to Christopher Campbell-Howes for assistance.
