Ownership history:

Alethea Garstin, (1894-1978), the artist's daughter; bequeathed by her to the Contemporary Art Society; presented to Tate, 1980
The Irish-born Garstin originally trained as an engineer and studied architecture and took up painting after being a diamond dealer in South Africa in the 1870s. During the 1880s Garstin trained in fine art in Antwerp and in Paris where he would have come across the French Impressionists. He settled in Newlyn, Cornwall in 1886 and became a member of the New English Art Club and the Newlyn School. This picture was painted in the open air and includes the artist’s wife (Louisa 'Dorchie' Jones) and his daughter Alethea (1894-1978), who was to become a painter herself. She bequeathed it to the Contemporary Art Society along with at least 40 other works that were presented to public galleries throughout the UK and abroad.
