William Brymner's impact on the history of art in Canada was profound. In addition to being a seminal teacher (he taught at the Art Association of Montreal for 35 years), he created a body of sensitive, luminous work that includes landscapes, domestic scenes, idyllic scenes of childhood and compelling portraits. Brymner trained in Europe in the Classical style and its influence, as well as that of Impressionism, can be seen in his work. His use of a golden-warm, enveloping light references the painters of the Barbizon School who were his contemporaries in Paris. Brymner's Royal Canadian Academy diploma piece titled A Wreath of Flowers was painted in 1884 at Runswick Bay, on the Yorkshire coast of England, where Brymner worked the summer and fall of that year. It is very likely that Afternoon Tea was also painted at Runswick Bay, as the work dates from the same year, and a sweeping shoreline and distant cliffs characteristic of the region can be seen through the window.
