Footnotes

  • A very similar composition in oils is in the Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead (titled 'Home Wind').

    Hemy often painted an oil and a watercolour of the same subject. He would paint the watercolour first and then work it up into a gallery painting. The watercolour was usually on a smaller scale, and in many cases livelier and fresher than the oil.

    We are grateful to Margaret Powell for her assistance in cataloguing this lot.
