The painting celebrates the centenary of Cecil Sharp’s first meeting with William Kimber, musician of Headington Quarry Morris Dancers. This historic scene took place outside Sandfield Cottage, Headington, Oxford, on Boxing Day, 1899. Anthony Morris was born in Oxford in 1938 and graduated from the Royal Academy in 1961 after three years in the painting faculty under Peter Greenham, CBE, RA. A regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition since 1960, he exhibits both landscapes and portraits in oils and watercolour.
