By the summer of 1918, Nevinson began to move away from war subjects. The war had left his nerves in tatters and and visits to the South Coast of England proved therapeutic. If one compares the malevolent depiction of the effects of wind in his mezzotint of the same name with his tranquil depiction of the ebbing tide on the Camber, one can see the artistís mind beginning to be relieved of the anguish caused by seeing the devastation caused by the ravages of war.
