This farm was near the Spencers’ home village of Cookham. During the late 1930s Stanley Spencer painted many local landscapes, and these were his most popular pictures. He complained privately that these landscapes stopped him doing his more imaginative paintings, but it is not difficult to see in them a considerable affection for both the place and the agricultural life. This painting was bought by the Tate Gallery in the year it was finished.
