After the first Exhibition of the Landscapes, Matthews achieved a short-lived cult status which to some smaller extent has continued to the present. The material of the Landscapes is apparently an allegorical interpretation and a reconstruction/prediction (again there must be some doubt) of his own life in which curiously stylised industrial or moorland backgrounds hold recognisable and, though the treatment is hardly realistic, recurrent figures, animals, birds and ‘metaphoric objects.’< Less

More > knowledge of herbs and simple cures and almost certainly not 'witches.' Alice Nutter is different. She was a respectable and probably quite wealthy woman, though there is some confusion about both her status and address. But she seems to me to lie at the heart of the matter.
