- Further information
Margaret Olley went to stay with her friend Donald Friend in Hill End, where he had bought a cottage and was working on his major piece 'Apocalypse of St John the Divine', for three weeks in May 1948. While there, they spurred each other on, working hard at painting and drawing, both in the surrounding landscape, and in the cottage. As well as being a very productive period for both of them, it also marked the deepening of their friendship, beautifully expressed in this intimate portrait by one artist, of another.
