Note: Apart from being a fine impressionist painter in the plein air, Barbizon tradition, William Cubitt Cooke was the illustrator of a groundbreaking 10-volume Jane Austen edition by J. M. Dent, published in 1892. The Dent edition features thirty illustrations, the largest number produced by one Austen artist to that date.
The present pochade panel was painted en plein air.
