Old women being beautified and distracted antiquarians are among Rowlandson’s favourite characters. The title may suggest that the print has an autobiographical element: Rowlandson was cared for by his wealthy aunt and uncle after his father’s bankruptcy in 1759, and inherited money from his aunt in 1789.
