Connard was well known in the 1920s and 30s as a painter of landscapes and portraits. His work is notable for its concentration on the fleeting effects of light, its lively impressionistic handling of paint, and his refusal to take account of contemporary modernist developments in painting. This painting can be seen as a celebration of family life.
