William Lee-Hankey was born in Chester, England in 1869. Hankey is notable for his paintings of French harbour scenes, figurative subjects and English country life. This painting is a wonderful example of this, as Hankey depicts the small, fishing-port town of Dieppe in France, reflecting the beauty he sees in everyday life.
