This painting was purchased for Coventry College of Education from the 'Pictures for Schools' Exhibition. In post-war Britain, art education was held to be an important part of a child's development and schools and colleges were actively encouraged to collect original works of art so that children and students could explore the ways in which they had been made. In the late 1950s travel in Europe opened up to more people, beguiled by new travel writing and, indeed by the cookery books of Elizabeth David that introduced a sense of the Mediterranean to the United Kingdom.
