Exhibition History:

CPLH, William Blake and His Followers, 4 Dec 1982-13 Feb 1983.

Full moonlight falling on a thatched cottage and surrounding trees: herdsman and his dog bring sheep into the fenced yard next to the house, while two children greet them with open gate and open door to the house. Inside the lighted house can be seen a woman setting the table, with plates on shelves behind her. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
