About this artwork

Hornel and his friend, George Henry, visited Japan in 1893. By this date both artists had abandoned the earlier realism of the Glasgow School for a flat decorative style and very strong colours. The paintings which resulted from their expedition to Japan are Japanese in subject but do not show any obvious indications of stylistic influence from Japanese art.
