William Lathrop was the son of a midwest farmer and throughout his life worked as both an artist and a farmer.

In the late 1880s he traveled to London and Paris, and inspired by the European countryside concentrated on painting in oils and watercolors. He became known for his atmospheric, understated landscapes in the Tonalist style.

Hurlingham Park looks south, across the river, to Wandsworth Park. It was a site where both amateur and professional activities overlapped. Thames barges, boats and tugs as well as rowboats and skiffs crowded the broad river.
