“This is a study for Fruit Pickers, one of the eight panels Brangwyn painted for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1914. There is a similar study in the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath. Brangwyn was the only British artist chosen to paint murals for the event, the others all being American” (13).
