Kate Greenaway (English, 1846-1901). Watercolor painting of three children fishing and playing by a pond on an overcast spring or summer day. There are three children in the foreground, one on the far left wears a brown frock and hat and holds a fishing pole with a bucket near their feet. Standing next to the fisher is a girl in an empire-waist white dress holding the hand of a much smaller child who seems disinterested in the other children's fishing activities. In the background are two other children seated under a tree near a family of ducks in the water. Behind them is a large, ivy-covered house behind a row of hedges. Initialed along the lower left.

Kate Greenaway was an English Victorian artist and writer known for her children's book illustrations. This work was featured in the November 1911 issue of "Woman's Home Companion," a monthly magazine published from 1873 to 1957.
