David Inshaw's artistic work includes paintings executed on a large scale, photography, etchings and drawings. For their 1986 corporate Christmas card, Momart reproduced one of Inshaw's "portraits" of Silbury Hill. Many of Inshaw's prints and paintings possess a ruralist quality, drawing inspiration from the simple beauty of the English countryside.

Physical description

In a landscape format, seven clouds and a constellation of stars hang on the low horizon of the dark blue moonlit sky. One prominent hill figures in the centre of the composition. The clouds and the hillside are rendered in the same palette of dark browns and greens.
