In a Garden Fair Annan, James Craig  (Scottish, 1864-1946)

“Amongst the British leaders, Mr. J. Craig Annan, though not so revolutionary as in the past two years, has again found a totally new theme for his main picture, and in ‘In a Garden fair’ made use of the dark shadows of an open doorway to emphasize the brilliant sunshine of an outdoor scene, and the delicate graceful lines of a light-costumed lady who forms its central object.”
