    Although born in Anstruther, Fife, Robert Fowler spent much of his working life in Liverpool, after studying in London. His studio in Castle Street became a chief centre for artistic life in the city, and he was a keen supporter of the Walker Art Gallery. His early work work was clearly influenced by Leighton and Albert Moore. The present picture is reminiscent of the feathery brushwork of Charles Sims.
