During the late 1960s Peter Brook and his family holidayed in Cumbria, staying at Jos Naylor's farm. The Cumbrian village bowling team was inspired by a photograph that Brook saw in a pub. This is a classic Brook image - a witty and poignant subject, which presented itself by chance, executed with technical brilliance and innovation. Brook, for instance, as well as painting with brushes, developed a technique using rollers - the light effect on the crags behind is achieved by applying more pressure on the roller. The painting is steeped in atmosphere - deeply evocative of time and place, whilst at the same time never at risk of appearing dated.
