From the National Gallery’s Collection in 1861 to Hardy’s exploration of artistic themes in his poetry and prose. The environment in which Hardy grew up inspired art; both his isolated, heathland home and the surrounding hills, which fostered childhood drawings and later poems. There are many paintings from those early days of the National Gallery which we know Hardy studied, through his references to those works in his novels short stories and poems.
