A cautionary tale, as the boy has cut his finger whilst making model boats. He's not that keen on the treatment, but his older sister is obviously enjoying his pain. The cat is motionless under the grandmother's dress. They're surrounded by the paraphernalia of a country cottage with hanging game, a shot gun and powder flask. There's even a flower stuck behind a small painting. Painted around 1860 or earlier it is very much in the manner of George Morland and is very nicely executed. Craquelure typical of the age of the painting.
On its original canvas and stretcher in a modern frame.
