This is one of the very few works that have survived from Cossington Smith’s visits to Canberra around the time of the First World War. During this period she often visited the Cunningham family at Lanyon Homestead in the ACT. The work reveals her feeling for the light, space and atmosphere of the local, rural landscape.
