After spending his early career focusing on landscapes, during the 1830s William Hunt increasingly painted genre subjects. The present watercolour is a fine example of his interest in this theme. Hunt explores the range of possibilities that can be achieved with watercolour in this work. The contrast of light and shadow is reminiscent of an oil painting, and his experiments with a cross-hatching and stippling technique demonstrates his desire to explore the medium.
