    Sickert spent the summer of 1916 in Chagford, Devon. The churchyard there became one of Sickert's favorite subjects to depict and several sketches, studies and oils were produced of the churchyard with it's gravestones silhouetted against the Devonshire countryside. The present lot is a study for an oil, listed in Wendy Baron's catalogue raisonée as 480.2, and now resides in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, having been bequeathed by Lillian Browse CBE.
