John Lessore comes from a family of artists: his uncle was Walter Sickert, and his mother Helen Lessore was both a painter and director of the Beaux Arts Gallery in London. His paintings take a long time to complete and are composed from a mixture of drawings from life, memory and the imagination. The subjects are always part of his everyday domestic life and often show the members of his family, such as his wife Paule and his children. This painting depicts the family's Sunday lunch, which is presented in both a casual and also a sacramental manner.
