A Boy Fishing

Museum number 272-1987-207

This watercolour is likely to be an informal portrait, but the sitter is not identified. McTaggart painted many charming portraits of children and many vibrant seascapes, here the two elements are brought together. The boy's expression is one of contented joy as he tries to catch something with his fishing rod.
