Stepperton Tor and Oke Tor from Belstone Tor, 1 March 1907

Description
A pen and ink drawing done by F.J. Widgery. These were his forte, and he is regarded highly by historians as being a master of this particular skill. Widgery is well-known throughout Devon for his extraordinary sketch collection - consisting of 500-600 works - which he bestowed upon the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in the occasion of his death. These pencil and crayon sketches were done for study as well as for leisure. They range to anything from the Devonshire landscape to studies of light and shadow as well as sketches of a variety of animals.
