For today’s work of art we revisit the Victorian Era, when most large households included a home brewery. The artist is Frederick Daniel Hardy and his painting is entitled Home Brewed Ale.
Hardy was born in 1826 or 27 and lived until 1911. Born in Windsor, England, he was originally a musician for Queen Victoria before abandoning it to study art. This painting was created around 1884. Like this work, most of Hardy’s are scene of everyday life for ordinary people.
