The present watercolour depicts a young Breton mother and child waiting for the return of the fishing fleet. In the background, fisherwomen stand gossiping, one carries a basket on her back ready to collect the catch.


After studying art in Paris where he was strongly influenced by the work of Jules Bastien-Lepage,Lee-Hankey set up his studio at Etaples in 1904 where he remained until the outbreak of war in 1914. He painted mostly pastoral views of Brittany and Normandy which included mothers with young children.
From the 1890s onwards he exhibited at all the important London galleries like the Fine Art Society,Leicester,R.W.S.,Lefrevre Galleries,Royal Academy,Goupil Gallery,Ridley Art Club,ROI,RE and the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. His work can be found in many provincial and national galleries, including the Victoria and Albert Museum.
