This celebrated painting is set near Victoria Crowe’s home in the village of Kittleyknowe, Scottish Borders. Crowe frequently painted her neighbour and friend, the shepherd Jenny Armstrong visible as a small dark figure set against the snow. Armstrong had worked all her life in the Borders and Crowe documented her changing relationship with the land over a period of fifteen years. In 2014, ‘Large Tree Group’ was reproduced as a tapestry by Dovecot Studios.
