David Shepherd was 24 years old when he painted this work. The painting illustrates a tremendous attention to detail, light, and shadow.
It portrays a time and way of living much slower, and where the quality of life was based more on actions than material wealth of our modern society where speed and technology are of importance.
The village 'Wherwell' Hampshire in the south of England still exists, and remains quite unchanged. Wherwell is a village on the River Test in Hampshire, England.
The name may derive from its bubbling springs resulting in the Middle Ages place name 'Hwerwyl' noted in AD 955, possibly meaning 'kettle springs' or 'cauldron springs'.
