B Fleetwood-Walker is one of our very favourite artists and this week on the Post four paintings by him taken from his family's excellent website here. This is 'The Family' 1932 and here is some information about the painting: '

The artist's first wife, Mickey, and two sons, Colin and Guy are the central features of this painting of his family, and while Fleetwood‐Walker himself is a somewhat shadowy figure in the background, his presence is almost like a guardian angel. The family are on a summer's picnic in an idealised landscape, possibly in Cornwall where the whole family went with students from the Birmingham School of Art on sketching tours.' The painting is at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, Stoke-on-Trent.
