Catalogue Note

The art critic of The Times, in speaking of the exhibition where this drawing was exhibited, singled it out as 'Taking rank amongst the very best of Mrs Allingham's work, and the very model of what an English watercolour should be, with its woodside cottage, its tangled hedges, its background of sombre fir trees and the figure of the girl with the basket, and of the cottagers to who she is offering her wares, showing as it does intense love for our beautiful south country landscape, with the power of seizing its most picturesque aspects with truth of eye and delicacy of hand.'
