The artist wrote (14 January 1961) that the picture was painted in London in October 1960, ‘from a series of drawings and water-colours that I made during the summer of the same year at Hillhead in Hampshire’. However, the back of the canvas is inscribed: ‘Adrian Heath Sept. 60’, perhaps the date when the canvas was prepared.
