Catalogue Note

A smaller, very similar composition on panel is in a private collection, England, and is published in Raymond Lister's catalogue raisonné of George Richmond's œuvre, and dated circa 1828.The subject matter is taken from Genesis 24:63, 'And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide'; it is one of a number of Biblical subjects the artist painted during his Shoreham period.
