    The present work dates to a short but prolific period between 1898 and 1899 when William Wendt, along with his friend George Gardner Symons, traveled through England. He spent the majority of his time in Cornwall on the southern coast, but also Kingsthorpe in Northampton, a landlocked town north of London with lush woodland landscapes. The red poppy fields in Kingsthorpe greatly inspired Wendt, and he painted several known landscapes of this subject, including one that was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. In 1899, Wendt exhibited forty-six works at the Art Institute of Chicago which were created primarily during this sojourn. In 1900, Wendt returned to California, fully embracing its rolling, verdant hills and leaving England's expansive meadows behind.
