A Helensburgh Breakfast. Annie Rose Laing (Scottish, 1869-1946).
Oil on canvas.

Born in Glasgow, Laing painted figures, landscapes, & interiors. She exhibited mainly in Scotland, lived for a while in Italy, & finally settled in London. She exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Academy, and the Glasgow Institute amongst others.

She particularly liked subjects of children and young women sitting in sunlit interiors at tables arrayed with flowers and delicious luncheons or taking tea. This work depicts two women with tea and a light breakfast. A newspaper or periodical has been put on the floor likely soon to be retrieved to read.
