William McTaggart was a native of Kintyre and therefore had a strong connection with the sea and with the west-coast fishermen, their boats and their families. In the late 1860s he painted a series of pictures of children from the herring-fishing communities, either playing amongst themselves or helping the adults to mend nets or bring in the catch on the shore. The side-long glance of the boy in present picture demonstrates McTaggart’s adoption of the conventions of mid-Victorian portraiture, whilst his clothing shows the artist’s desire to be more realistic in his portrayals.
