Abstract:
"Three pretty young nuns stand behind a widely spaced iron grille; one of them sells netted silk purses to a handsome young British officer in full regimentals who gazes fixedly at them. Two return his gaze. Behind and on the extreme left, an ugly old officer stares at them through a lorgnette. Beside the three nuns is a fourth, old, ugly, sour, and duenna-like. The figures are half length or three-quarter length. Behind the nuns is a background of Gothic vaulting with a crucifix."--British Museum online catalogue.
