This painting is of Williams's wife, and was described by his daughter during the negotiations for the painting's purchase as 'Brown Owl', the reason for the alternative title being that when this work was exhibited, when she was a young girl, a friend exclaimed 'Oh look it's Brown Owl!' Mrs Williams was Brown Owl of the local Brownies, and the young girl recognised her!
