John made 140 etchings, the majority between 1901 and 1906, culminating in an exhibition organised by Charles Knewstubb at the Chenil Gallery, London, in 1906. The published state of Out on the Moor (25 impressions) was issued in 1906. The subject dates from a visit John made to Dartmoor in 1905 with his wife Ida and sons David and Robin, who are the models here.

John’s relationship with Nettleship, whom he married in 1901, is the subject of Orpens roundel, Annete and Lubin (see cat. 58).

We are grateful to David Maes, Hilary Gerrish and Michael Campbell for assistance.
