This is a picture developed from the 1891 "Idleness", featuring Rose Grimsdale of Cookham Village. Clausen must have kept the sketches for that painting to use later; the technique used here (using a flat, square-ended brush in a loose, Impressionist way)is very different from that used in "Idleness". The same pose and setting also appear in "Noon in the Hayfield" (1897), produced long after Clausen had moved away from the Cookham area.
