Study of a Highland Cow

This delightful image of a highland cow is likely to have been a study for one of Hurt’s larger works. Hurt lived in Derbyshire with his wife, Harriet, where the couple kept their own highland cattle. Hurt depicted these animals in his paintings as well as the cattle he saw in Bettwys-y-Coed, Wales, where he had a second home.
