"A grandson of the painter William Mulready, Augustus was a member of the Cranbrook art colony in Kent, devoted to painting small rural interiors in the Dutch manner. By the time of this painting, about 1875, he was painting more ambitious scenes of every day life on a larger scale, and with a freer hand." — Rupert Maas
