Evening View of Sudbury from the South-west

Evening View of Sudbury from the South-west

This is the most dramatic of three views of Sudbury painted by Rowland Suddaby. Suddaby, a native of Surrey, spent a great part of his career painting Suffolk landscapes. This watercolour may pay tribute to Sudbury's most famous son, the painter Thomas Gainsborough. Indeed, after the war, Suddaby settled there, eventually becoming curator of the Gainsborough House.
