In this painting Queen Victoria shows her six eldest children acting the closing scene of Kotzebue’s comedy Der Hahnenschlag (The Cockshy) in a performance at Windsor Castle on Twelfth Night in 1852. Stylistically the picture displays the influence of Winterhalter, who taught the Queen oil painting during his visits to England.
