In the summer of 1912 Gore went to stay in the new town of Letchworth. Here he painted some of the more avant-garde landscapes of his career, using stylised forms and vivid colours. 'The Cinder Path' shows a place on the outskirts of Letchworth. Gore’s perspective means that the path, which is made of industrial waste, recedes vertically into the middle-distance, and the fields and hedges are arranged around it. This was one of the few British pictures exhibited in the influential ‘Second Post-Impressionist Exhibition’ organised by Roger Fry in the winter of 1912.
