Bates notes the 'passionate singleness of mind' of Van Gogh and says that 'all through the war...I kept steadfastly in my mind's eye my own group of pictures.'

These images — of the trees, streams, paths, and flowers of the English countryside — served as an 'anchorage' to him and 'a revolt against the element of destruction...It is the memory of such simple and enduring things that gives us courage in uncertainty.'

In Nash's Annual (December, 1946, p. 5, attached).
