Country landscapes are very rare in Maitland's oeuvre. It is known that he went to Ludlow to stay with his friend, the painter William Osborn, whose wife worked in a school there, and to Buckinghamshire to stay with his relations, the Snows. There are no significant features in this view which could assist in an identification, thus it could be either Shropshire or Buckinghamshire. An old handwritten label cites it as Buckinghamshire.
