Abstract:
"A family party walking past the entrance to Bagnigge Wells: A fat citizen, his wig awry and dripping with perspiration, carries a little girl who holds a whip. His stout wife walks behind (right) holding a fan in one hand, a tasselled cane in the other, she smiles complacently. In front, a small boy drags a small four-wheeled chair in which sits a doll-like child holding a doll. The background is the corner of a brick house (right) showing part of a bow-window inscribed "Dealer in Coffee", and a gate inscribed "Bagnigge Wells" with an ogive-shaped decoration surmounting the architrave. Behind are trees. The design evidently derives from Hogarth's "Evening".-- British Museum online catalogue.
