Walton was one of the most prominent members of the group of artist friends known as the Glasgow Boys who had been inspired by French developments in landscape painting. He sought to explore the natural effects of light on the Scottish landscape by painting outside rather than from sketches in the studio. He trained for a year in Dusseldorf and studied at the Glasgow School of Art, but was most influenced by the experience working with his fellow painters at Cockburnspath, Berwickshire and Cambuskenneth, Stirling. He spent a successful decade living in London but from 1904 he was settled with his family in Edinburgh and was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy in 1905. The present picture was probably painted circa.1918 in the fields around the pretty Fife village of Ceres, looking towards the parish church which was built in 1806 by Alexander Leslie. As a biographer has noted; ‘Walton was a painter so distinguished that he held a special place in the regard… of all who followed with an intelligence or interest the development of art in the country during the last three or four decades.’ (Fiona MacSporran, Edward Arthur Walton 1860-1922, 1987, p.9)
