Francis Newbery was an influential artist and art educationist who, as headmaster/director, led the Glasgow School of Art from 1885–1918. He was responsible, in part, for the appointment of Charles Rennie Mackintosh as architect of the School's new building that was finally completed in 1909. About 1900 Newbery and his wife and fellow artist, Jessie, rented a house in the seaside village of Walberswick in Suffolk which was already a popular artists' colony. This painting captures a typical wooden building overlooking the River Blythe and may have been used, in part, as an artist's studio.

This painting was lost in the fire in The Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art on 23rd May 2014.
