An excellent atmospheric painting of a Scouting Wide Game on Hampstead Heath c. 1912 by George Hillyard Swinstead (1860 – 1926)
Good to see a colour image of the Scout uniform in its first decade.
Two further scouts each carrying their scout staff can be seen in the distance in the bottom left hand corner.
A further interesting Scouting painting by Swinstead called The Good Turn can be found on the same Art UK site which I will feature on a separate blog post. https://artuk.org/discover/artworks/the-good-turn-135270
