Cecil Aldin (1870-1935) remains one of the most talented and popular depictors of English life; his prints and paintings of sporting scenes, dogs, and old buildings, and his regular appearance in books and magazines brought him worldwide fame, and his work is widely sought after. He had an especial interest in English coaching inns (the subject of several of his books) and this scene is one of his finest renditions of this subject.
