In the top left hand corner of the painting is the inscription 'Paris/March 80/To my friend LT/GFM'. LT is known to be the artist, John Leslie Thomson (1851–1929) and GFM is George Frederick Munn (1852-1907), landscape and still-life painter. The depth of their friendship is well-documented. The painting was donated to the Collection as part of the Macarthur Bequest in 1946. It is named after the painter Lindsay Grandison Macarthur (1865–1945). In 1934, Macarthur married Beatrice Butts Thompson (née Howell) (b. 1873), whose first husband had been the above-mentioned John Leslie Thomson, whom she had married in 1904.
