Display caption

Painted on site at Findochtie in Scotland, this painting takes up a frequent theme in Hook’s work of the involvement of wife and children in a man’s work. Hook’s rich colouring, learned in Venice – for instance in the vivid evening light reflected on the water – contributed to his fame.
