Home from the Sea, oil on canvas by Arthur Hughes, 1832-1915, British pre-Raphaelite painter.
A young man returning home from service mourns his mother’s death as his sister looks on. This painting was a second of the same theme as the first received negative critical reviews. The sister was added in this work.
A key to what has happened is echoed in the sheep and lamb separated by a tombstone in the background. The painting is in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, England.
