'Milking Time' by Eyre Crowe A.R.A. (1903). Reproduction from Royal Academy Pictures, 1903, p. 167

Medium: oil

Size: 16 x 22 inches

Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1903

This picture was painted during Crowe’s time in Boulogne in the summer of 1902. In his diary he writes that he used a French model called Ernestine Leroi for the girl milking.

A ‘Landscape with Outbuildings and Cattle – Milking Time’ (perhaps a sketch in oils for this painting) was sold at auction by Messrs Furber on 22 February 1911, fetching 12 shillings.
