The internet says Roberts travelled widely in Europe including Paris, so it's not at all outside of possibility.

Yep, Roberts lived and worked in London and travelled through mainland Europe but I have no idea if he saw the Caillebotte. But I wasn't really suggesting he was inspired by it, I just saw the Caillebotte and the compositional similarities and similar subject struck me.

Of course, the Roberts is a celebration and near-chocolate-box Romanticising of labour and the Caillebotte's grimmer hues and comparative starkness tells a truer tale of the shittiness of shitty manual work.

But there are echoes and convergences everywhere, maaaan.
Good.

Sybil Andrews: a linocut artist who really took the medium to new levels. Linocut work is much easier than woodblock cuts, but is more 'primitive' as a result. It's very difficult to get any real detail, and normally there is a maximum of five colours, so the main image itself has to be particularly striking. I think some of Andrews' work is amazing - the ability to convey movement into such a simple image is really something.

"Mowers" 1937

"The Winch" 1930

"Speedway" 1934

The way the different currents in the water are captured is wonderful and the reflected light is tremendously tranquil. You can picture yourself sitting there with the almost complete silence drawing you in.
