Notes: '... one of his most beautiful pictures, 'Lighting Up Time', where the mystery of the end of day has fallen upon the figures - tired mother, a solemn intimate silhouette, watching girl and intent boy irradiated by the glow, a picture of the arrested moment, mortals of the day in the eternal landscape - Cornwall in all its wilderness and simplicity.' (C. Lewis Hind, The Art of Stanhope Forbes, The Art Journal Christmas edition, 1912, pp. 25-26)
