*Harry Morley was born in Leicester where he studied architecture. On visiting Italy he was so impressed by the early Italian paintings, he gave up architecture for painting. As with other members of the Arts and Crafts movement, he approached fine art as a craft. He ground his own colours and made his own emulsions. He had much in common with the Birmingham school of tempera painters, who had like him learnt this demanding technique. This picture exhibits his skill as a draughtsman. The high quality of the drawing of the buildings is no doubt due to his early training as an architect. Stanley Anderson [1884-1966], to whom the picture was given, was a noted etcher, famous for his prints of rural craftsmen.
