Graham Sutherland’s watercolor entitled "Welsh Landscape with Yellow Lane," painted in 1939-1940, depicting an ominous landscape with sun rays coming out from behind a black cloud. There is a yellow lane swerving from the foreground leading back to the setting sun. Painting by Sutherland, called "Landscape with Rocks," from 1944, that’s an abstracted landscape with a bright orange background and sharp jagged grey rocks in the foreground.













Image of Sutherland’s "The Thorntree" (1946), referencing the crown of thorns pressed onto Christ’s head by the soldiers. The tree structure, in front of shades of blue, transforms into weapons and the thorns look like daggers.Sutherland’s "Cardiff Farmhouse, St. Mary Church," ca.1940, a mixed-media piece depicting multiple line drawings of a church with shades of pink and salmon color.
