Within the interior of a well appointed townhouse, a woman has arrived to visit with a mother and father and their young child. A tale of desires and interests plays out within the grouping, as each figure has a different focus - the mother on her child, the child on the doll, the visitor on the child, and the father on the comely visitor.

Allover craquelure; obscuring varnish under UV with areas of retouch evident.
