About this artwork

This photograph has deliberately been taken at the eye level of the girl who squints against the sun in the right upper corner of the picture. This gives us a more immediate sense of the children enjoying the outdoors and picking wild flowers. Although they are standing in a group, each of them has their own preoccupation, not the least the little boy in the foreground who appears to be offering flowers to the girl facing him.
