Zoom into the detail of this painting
Creswick’s ‘Evening’ (displayed in the Drawing Room) had been in the family ever since George Holt’s father bought it from the Liverpool Academy exhibition of 1850. The fact that this painting is the same size and had been owned by another Liverpool collector, John Marsh, before Holt bought it in 1876, suggests that the two works could have been a pair.
The present picture, the more picturesque of the two, may be the ‘Morning in Wales’ that Creswick sent to the Liverpool Academy in 1846.
