Painted circa 1920 the painting is of a mother with a baby and young girl, the latter gazing at the viewer, as they walk along a cobbled quayside. In the background are boats and houses. The vibrant Scottish palette, impasto and brushwork are superb as are the reflections in the water. A really lovely colourful painting in the Scottish tradition and an excellent example of Wright's work.
