Walton On the Naze, Ford Maddox Brown, 1859
This card features a 1859 painting of a small town on the Essex coast. The gentleman on the left is the artist Ford Maddox Brown. The lady and the little girl, drying their hair after bathing, are his wife, Emma and their daughter Catherine. The painting is of a leisure theme, promoting tourism to Londoners to travel by the steamer. Visible on the horizon is the smoking factory and the ships in the estuary. A sure contrast to the industrialised Black Country in the West Midlands.
