Abstract:
"A lady, ugly and elderly, sits at a piano in profile to the left, playing and singing. Her open music-book shows her 'Song: would you hurt a harm less maid maid I am young and sore afraid afraid'. Beside her in an arm-chair a fat man with short clumsy legs sits impassively. A patterned carpet completes the design."--British Museum online catalogue.
