This study of a hutch table, or table settle, was executed during the artist’s visit to Somerset in 1862. It is a study for his 1866 watercolour Hide a Stick, Hide a Stick, in a Little Hoyle, (exhibited Manchester Art Gallery, Frederic Shields Exhibition, 1907, no.126, present location unknown). The idea for the picture was conceived during the visit to Porlock and is recorded in the artist’s diary of January 1862 (E. Mills, Life and Letters of Frederic Shields, London, 1912, p.70). The finished painting depicts three children playing a traditional Somerset game similar to Hide and Seek. An engraving of the picture was illustrated in the catalogue to the 1907 Manchester exhibition.
