Oil on canvas 60 x 72 inches
First exhibition details not known. Details sought.
Originally painted with a violinist included in the scene as first exhibited at the Royal Academy 1912 No 744, titled Music
Harold Knight became uncomfortable with the work and in a bold volte face removed the violinist, extended the line of trees, changed some colours in the scene such as the colours of the bay in the distance; but keeping the main subject matter encompassing the girls intact as shown .
The artist repainted the violinist into another work called The Soloist
An image of the original work called Music is sought for inclusion in the Catalogue Raisonne
