John Butler Yeats described what life was like there in a letter to Rosa Butt in 1900, the spirit of which is captured in the present work: 'I have had a radiant fortnight with Jack and his wife. They are so quietly happy and busy. Each in their own way that one asks oneself is it possible that any kind of trouble should ever find them out.' (quoted in Pyle, Yeats: Portrait of an Artistic Family, 1997, p.26).
