About the artist
About the artwork
This image demonstrates an intimate knowledge of rural life in Wade's native Lancashire. It shows workers engaged in cutting peat with cattle in the distance and a dog in the foreground. Cutting peat for fuel was a legal right in the countryside in the 19th century, for personal use or for small gain. There is dignity and nobility in the group he represents, but Wade also depicts the hardship.
