    During the 1890s, Osborne produced a number of works related to milking time, set both indoors and outdoors. During this period, the artist would summer with the Jameson family at St. Marnock's in north Co. Dublin, and Sheehy refers to two works painted for the family, Milking Time in St. Marnock's Byre and Cattle, St. Marnock's. Another study from the same collection, painted circa 1898, shows a number of similarities to the present lot, as does a pencil study for Milking Time in St. Marnock's Byre from the Roth Collection (Christie's London, 14 May 2004 lot 35).
