The wife here anxiously awaits the return of her husband, just visible in the distance. George IV acquired this evocation of virtuous family life through the offices of Sir Thomas Lawrence. It hung, along with The Wolf and the Lamb and Village Choristers, in the intimate rooms at Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, where he preferred to live in the 1820s.
