This painting is a charming farmyard scene from the well-known oeuvre of animal painter Edgar Hunt. It is a perfect image of idyllic country life, and would have been very appealing to wealthy city-dwellers of the early Twentieth Century, who yearned for the peaceful country life that existed before industrialisation.
