The  juxtaposition of bright primary colours in this painting demonstrates one of the qualities for which Brangwyn's work was much remarked up at this period. Writing in 1912 Kandinsky noted that  Brangwyn was 'probably one of the first artists of yesterday to introduce this juxtaposition (of red and blue) into his early paintings' (Uber des geistige in Kunst, 1912).

In 1896 Brangwyn travelled to Spain with Alfred East. In the same year Brangwyn married Lucy Annie Ray.

This work will appear as O4227 in Dr. Libby Horner's forthcoming catalogue raisonne.
