Catalogue Note

This watercolour was based upon Millais' steel engraving for volume II of John Halifax, Gentleman by Dinah Mulock, published by Hurst and Blackett in 1861. It illustrates the line; 'And there stood the little girl, with a loaf in one hand and a carving knife in the other. She succeeded in cutting off a large slice, and holding it out.'
