The inspiration for the background was a striking castle-like structure, most likely Osborne House, as viewed from the Solent by the artist and his wife on their honeymoon. What a perfect location, they later thought, for a classic Edwardian era British family to have hosted one of those elegant manorial lawn parties.
This painting is the first in the Jim Flood series The Great Age of Sailing the Big Boats.
