"This picture may be safely affirmed to be one of the finest specimens extant of the painter's talents. The figure of the peasant, who, after peacefully enjoying his homely meal, with arms reclined on the table, watching the eagerness of the child to obtain the bauble, which the old woman holds beyond its reach, is full of nature and expression; as is, also, the figure of the rustic, who has just taken his pipe from his mouth, that he may join in applauding the infantine exertion. The little girl playing with the dog, and the boy lolling at the window, constitute a most agreeable episode or second group, which, besides otherwise enlivening the scene, serves to connect the chain of light, as well as colour, from the open casement to the principal group - the napkin on the three-legged table being the focus of the picture." [P. 6.]
Gallery of Pictures, selected from the most admired productions of the Old Masters, Doggett's Repository, No. 16 Market-Street.
