Born in Essex in 1919, Charles Duranty first discovered the East Anglian landscape during his time working on local farmland during the war. Despite being very moved by his surroundings, Duranty only began painting these sights in his forties. Described by himself as ’memories’, these imagined landscapes are romantic recollections from his youth. The village of Childerditch mentioned in the title of this picture is close to where the artist was born
