It was acquired through a fund set up by the friends of Keith Roberts, art historian and critic, who died in 1979. The National Gallery was chosen as the site for a work in his Ufmory because it was always his favourite. Until recently the painting - done in 1628 - was looked upon only as a landscape, but cleaning revealed the figure of Narcissus in the bottom left hand corner, gazing forlornly at his own reflection.
