This print is plate four of seven designed by Paul Nash for the book ‘Places’, published by William Heinemann Ltd in 1922.
The pond in this image is in Wittersham, a village two miles north of Oxenbridge. Causey notes that a 1920 drawing, ‘The Lake, Black Park, a Romantic Drawing’ (Causey 305, pl. 438), has affinities with this engraving principally because of the two figures in the top right-hand corner which closely resemble the figure in the print.
