Footnotes

  • Cecil Leonard Burns was one of a series of influential directors of the Sir J.J. School of Art in Bombay, such as John Lockwood Kipling and Gladstone Solomon at this period. Works by him are rare as his possessions were burnt in a docks fire on arrival home at Southampton. Thane was a destination for en plein air painting due to its open country and luminous light.
