Catalogue Note

This charming picture was probably painted c.1906-1907 when Knight painted a series of intimate interior scenes of children and mothers in the Yorkshire coastal village of Staithes where she and her husband Harold had lived since they married just a few years earlier. Contemporary pictures depict similar scenes The Elder Sister (Rochdale Art Gallery), The Knitting Lesson (Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston) and Dressing the Children (Ferens Art Gallery, Hull).
