Wood Engraving (1933). Original size 20.3 x
25.4cm. Leighton approved the title ‘To the Milking’ for this print, but
it is sometimes known, somewhat incongruously since none are depicted,
as ‘Cottage Gardens’. This is a particularly delightful print. It is
July in the farmer’s year. The fierce heat of day has dissipated, and as
the cows wend their languorous way to a milking parlour the viewer’s
eye is subtly drawn to the same central point within the picture.
Size: 22.3 x 28.00cm; paper 40.0 x 46.0cm
Format: Giclée print; limited edition (1/850) on 310gsm thick, 100% cotton rag.
