Executed circa 1911-13.  Meteyard and his wife Lilian moved to Rye, Sussex in the beginning of 1911 where, as Nicholas Kilmer describes, “they settled into a house whose back garden abutted that of Henry James.  The Meteyards had known James already – his brother William James, whose philosophy class Meteyard had taken at Harvard, had given them an introduction to Henry when they had first come to England.  In Rye, Meteyard commenced working on a broad range of images” (Nicholas Kilmer, ed., Thomas Buford Meteyard (1865-1928): Paintings and Watercolors, exhibition catalogue, Berry-Hill Galleries, New York, 1989, p. 38).
