Competition: Trees in your Woodland

Posted on October 11, 2017 by

In Christiana Payne‘s entertaining and beautifully-illustrated study, “Silent Witnesses:Trees in British Art, 1760 – 1870” , trees stand as silent witnesses to human ingenuity, vanity, nostalgia and the pursuit of excellence. The author explores the role of trees in the country-house culture of the eighteenth century, the many specialized drawing manuals produced for artists and amateurs, and the growing emphasis on the value of woodlands as shady places to escape the summer heat of the cities.

Publication of Silent Witnesses is timed to coincide with the launch, by the Woodland Trust, of the Charter for Trees, Woods and People, to protect, cherish and plan for the future of our precious but threatened inheritance

How To Win!

To win a copy of the book that includes paintings by Constable, Samuel Palmer and Gainsborough, all you have to do is send us an image of your community woodland in Autumn.  The images will be used to promote community woodlands and published on the website and Facebook Page.

Images can be sent to Llais y Goedwig on disc or emailed to info@llaisygoedwig.org.uk as a high resolution jpeg.

Competition closes 22 November, the winning image will be announced in the December newsletter – Good Luck!
