An exquisite painting by George Howard of his youngest daughters, Lady Aurea and Lady Dorothy, gathering flowers at Bog Hall on the Castle Howard estate. George Howard, aristocrat, politician and painter, succeeded his uncle as the 9th Earl of Carlisle in 1889, and inherited the Howard Estates.

George Howard always had the desire to be an artist. He travelled to Italy in 1865 where he met and studied under Giovanni Costa and on his return he continued his artistic training at the Kensington School of Art and Heatherley's Art school. He was a friend and patron of the Pre-Raphaelite artists, Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, Ford Maddox Brown, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. He was particularly close to Burne-Jones and purchased many of his works. Burne-Jones's painting of ' Arthur in Avalon ' was originally intended as a painting for Howard's home at Naworth Castle in Cumberland, but Howard released him from the commission when he discovered Burne-Jones's had become personally attached to the painting.

Along with Frederic Lord Leighton, William Blake Richmond and Giovannni Costa, George Howard was a founding member of the " Etruscan School of Art " in 1882. He exhibited oils and watercolours at the Grosvenor Gallery between 1877-1887 and his paintings are in the collections of the Tate Gallery, York Art Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Ashmolean Museum and Castle Howard.
