Haigh-Wood’s enchanting visions of romance, with attractive girls and pretty dresses are some of the most endearing and popular of all images. His patrons adored them, a successful businessman of Haigh-Wood’s day with any pretension to artistic taste had to own one.
He exhibited from 1874 to 1904, at the Royal Academy from 1879 to 1904, Suffolk Street, New Watercolour Society and elsewhere.
Titles at the Royal Academy include “The Harvest Moon” 1879, “Chatterboxes” 1889 and “The Old Love and the New” 1901.
This undoubtedly has to be the most famous of all Haigh-Wood’s images known to have come on the open market. There have been numerous prints and cards made of this image and stands amongst some of the most prestigious paintings to be used in this way.
