19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him."

The background to this artwork is Seilebost Beach on the Atlantic seaboard of the Isle of Harris, one of the largest islands in the Western Isles archipelago (formerly known as the Outer Hebrides). This group of islands is renowned for unspoiled natural beauty, immaculate beaches, a diversity of wildlife, mild summers with only three hours of darkness and relatively mild winters, given their position just below the Arctic Circle.
