John Brett (1830-1902) paintings often feature a very colorful and wide open horizon. The earth itself seems alive somehow, with uneven but not particularly dramatic terrain. But maybe the west of England is just like that.
It is not uncommon that the signal feature which gives the work its name is barely discernible: the great wide, and seemingly wild, world, is of greater interest.
