    Inscr. ‘J. Young Hunter 1899’ b.r.
    Canvas, 42×71 3/4 (107×182).
    Chantrey Purchase from the artist 1899.
    Lit: A. L. Baldry, ‘The Work of Mr and Mrs J. Young Hunter’ in Studio, XXVIII, 1903, pp.271–9.
    Repr: Art Journal, 1899, p. 178; Royal Academy Pictures, 1899, p.57.

    Painted in the grounds of Holland House, Kensington. The artist's first wife Mary (1872–1947) posed for the lady. The picture is cited in the Introduction to Royal Academy Pictures, 1899, with other imaginative canvases by the younger men as ‘typical examples of the modern spirit and as marking plainly the direction in which youthful fancy is disposed to tend’. A. L. Baldry described the school to which the artist and his wife belonged as ‘the new Pre-Raphaelites’ and said that it had grown up as a reaction against the realistic belief taught a quarter of a century before. According to him ‘My Lady's Garden’ was the first picture to show that this romantic tendency had gained a hold over the artist.
