Keith Vaughan, ‘The Wall at Ashton Gifford VII’, ca. 1942, Osborne Samuel

In 1942, Vaughan was stationed at Ashton Gifford, an 18th century house, near the Codford army depot in Wiltshire. Works from this time feature soldiers stationed there carrying out various works, tree felling, clearing parkland etc. on the grounds. One of those works is now owned by the Manchester Art Gallery. All of the exhibited works from this period are gouaches and mixed media on paper and were shown at Reid & Lefevre in 1944.
