In the late 1930s the Monningtons frequently went on sailing holidays with the Courtauld family on the Norfolk Broads. On such occasions, often accompanied by his Slade contemporary Rodney Burn, Monnington went
off on sketching sorties to paint en plein air.

A landscape of the same period, entitled Trees, a view down the valley below Leyswood, is in the Tate Collection (T03833).

We are grateful to John Monnington for assistance.
