Description

In 1882, Langley settled in Newlyn, Cornwall. The subjects of his paintings were typically Cornish fishermen and their families. The title of this picture is taken from Charles Kingsleys (1819-1875) poem 'The Three Fishers', the first verse reads: Three fishers went sailing away to the west, Away to the west as the sun went down; Each thought on the woman who loved him the best, And the children stood watching them out of the town; For men must work, and women must weep.
