About this item: 

This painting depicts a group of friends reflected through a mirror image. They stand in the low-beamed living-room of Belwethers, a cottage in the village of Cranleigh, Surrey. In 1916 Lambert visited the village when his son Constant became seriously ill with osteomyelitis while he was a student at Christ’s Hospital school in Horsham, West Sussex. Lambert himself looks out of the image in the foreground. Lambert’s wife, Amy, dressed in blue is depicted in the centre of the room, standing.
