This picture is one of a series of “six-footers” painted by Pyne for the Manchester art dealers, Thomas Agnew and Sons for their wealthy Manchester industrial clients, who had amassed huge fortunes during the Industrial Revolution. Many of these clients had built large country homes in the Lake District which since Wordsworth, had become inextricably linked with the Romantic ideal of natural beauty. The houses were of a scale that demanded large pictures to fill them.

Pyne was inspired by JMW Turner, who was to die only four years after this painting was created; it continued the tradition of painting “light" started by Claude Lorrain and brought to a state of perfection by Turner.
