Dorset Landscape

The painting shows the coastline of the Isle of Purbeck, near Tyneham. A group of hikers are set against the peaceful backdrop.

The painting depicts Dorset as a haven of tranquillity, with wide unspoilt views. Yet at the time of painting, coastal developments had begun to spring up all along the Dorset shoreline. Ward omitted these developments.
