School is Out By Ethel Spowers
Linocut (1936). What better evocation of the release experienced when the bell finally rings, school is out and we are free to go? Spowers captures this feeling through the swinging of arms – it’s as if the children fly like birds from a cage – by use of the barking dog, exuberant at the children’s flight… This is no ‘accurate’ portrayal, it captures the quintessence of feeling experienced in the release, and in so doing it achieves a greater accuracy, perhaps, than any more representational portrayal might have done.
