Artist: Edward Atkinson Hornel
12.5 by 16 inches
"Here Hornel is not merely portraying girls playing together on a hillside in the company of goats, used here as a symbol of fertility; he is weaving a rich pattern of multi-coloured shapes, in which perspective is flattened, the horizon has almost disappeared, the demarcation between figures, goats and background is purposely indistinct and the handling of paint is broad." (Five Centuries of Scottish Painting, Atelier Books, 2006)
This work was on display in Kirkcudbright Town Hall in the exhibition Five Centuries of Scottish Painting, 22 July to 28 August, 2006
