Honeyman (loc. cit.) writes that during the 1914–18 war Leslie Hunter worked on his uncle's farm at Millburn, Larkhall, and found time to paint several pictures: ‘The best were the still lifes and interiors of the farm kitchen. A typical example is in the Tate Gallery.’

William McInnes was a great friend and patron of the artist.
