Oliver Rackham writes: "Only one picture, John Brett's "The Hedger", is of a convincing wood, with stools of oak and ash (but the cataloguer calls them "birch"!) and in the foreground a woodbank with a man plashing a hedge on it.
O. Rackham, "Woodlands", Collins, 2010

Thank you. I've read Oliver but didn't notice that. The Stonebreaker is also very real in that way.
