William Walker Morris paintings infrequently come available and little is known about him other than he had a rather brief career of just over 15 years. His paintings are very highly regarded when they can be found. This is a very strong and charming example.
His pieces are found in the Anglesey Abbey, British National Trust and the Williamson Art Gallery Museum, Merseyside, England
