Summertime in Devon

William Atkinson Page Wells was born in Glasgow but went to London to study, at the Slade School of Art.  He returned to Glasgow after his training, but only for a brief period. Financial pressure soon forced him to take up a post as a theatrical scene painter in Lancashire.  He eventually settled in Devon where he painted Devonshire scenes of which this is a typical example with its vast sky and midday sun shining on a group of small figures set in a wide open space.
