The time represented is just before the sunset at the close of a rainy day.
A group of cattle at the foot of the hill are pausing in the shallow
water of the little streamlet which emerges from the thick undergrowth
at the right. Large beech trees and a sycamore appear at the right
of the picture, and through their branches the sunlight falls upon
the cattle beneath, while the last rays of the setting sun gild the
clouds beyond and light up the figure of the little maiden who is
bringing the cows home. The cattle are all portraits. Painted in
1883. Mr. Barber has devoted himself to cattle and landscape paint-
ing almost exclusively throughout his career. He has exhibited a
number of times at the National Academy, and frequently in other
leading exhibitions, and his work is qutie widely known over the coun-
try, ranking with that of the principal cattle painters.
