One of England's leading Impressionists in the early twentieth century, de Glehn was known for his direct, painterly style, his vibrant colors, and his ability to render fluctuations of sunlight and shadow. He was a member of London's prestigious Royal Academy, as well as the New English Art Club, and his paintings were exhibited regularly in London, Paris, and in the United States. While assisting Edwin Austin Abbey in his murals for the Boston Public Library, de Glehn befriended Sargent, on whose murals for the library he also assisted. He remained a close associate of Sargent's, often painting at his side in Venice and Spain. His style, as demonstrated in this image of a picturesque English countryside, features a breezy fluidity similar to that of Sargent.
