This painting of Grisedale Pike was the result of a visit by the artist to the Lake District. The view in the painting seems to be taken from near the village of Braithwaite, which might be the small village suggested by a few schematic houses in the lower left of the picture, and looking south towards the mountains, but their height has been greatly exaggerated. The artist has also given a far more dramatic profile to the hills to suggest the way they seem to pile up against each other above the narrow valleys of the Lake District.
