Benjamin Williams Leader

[The Hayfield]


1831 - 1923.

[The Outskirts of a Farm]


A scene at Whittington, a small farming village south of Worcester. He was lodging nearby at the time and later moved into the village itself. There is a clear Pre-Raphaelite influence with its attention to detail, clear colours and being painted in strong sunlight.
