Joseph Edward Southall was a British Arts and Crafts painter and a member of the Birmingham Group. They were one of the last outposts of Romanticism in the visual arts, and an important link between the last embers of the Pre-Raphaelites and the new Slade Symbolists.
He used the technique to create richly coloured, decorative compositions peopled by elegant figures. These are jewel-like works, many still in their original gold frames made by Southall and his wife.
Southall lived and worked in Birmingham, this scene is probably set near his home in Charlotte Road.
