Scottish-born Australian painter Ian Fairweather left Shanghai, China in late 1932 or early 1933, and stopped off in Bali, Indonesia for six months on his way to Australia. This picture and a painting 'Procession in Bali' bought from The Redfern Gallery in 1936 by the Leicester Museum and Art Gallery (L.F33.1936.0.0), seem to be his largest and most important early surviving works.
