From 1912 until his death in 1925, Robert Bevan regularly spent his summers in Devon. He painted The Ford and The Caller at the Mill while staying at an isolated and barely furnished cottage called Lytchett, on Hart's Farm, in the Blackdown Hills. Both recall the stylized landscapes painted by Gauguin and other avant-garde French artists at Pont-Aven in Brittany, where Bevan spent formative periods of his early career.
