About this artwork

When war broke out in 1914, Fergusson and his wife, the dancer Margaret Morris Fergusson, left their home in France and settled in London. They returned to Paris in 1925, the year in which the present picture was painted. Despite its almost Mediterranean quality, 'The Log Cabin' seems to have been painted in England shortly before their return.
