Howdy, Pearl!

You have been to Lyme Regis? How lucky of you! I always associate Lyme Regis with the pertinent chapters in Jane Austen's 'Persuasion', my favourite of all her novels (if I had to choose).

Great period in art, that, the early 1900s to 1930s. (...) It all coincided with the new 'religion' of psychology and Jungian-ism, etc etc. All vastly different from Tolkien's own creative sources and stream.

Yes, vastly different. Yet in spite of the disparity Tolkien managed to make fine use of the Cubist style to make this arresting picture. I really do love it, more a picture of a perception of moonlit woods rather than of the woods themselves.
