since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
So much is happening in the outskirts of the picture, it took my eye a few moments to reach the subject - part of the point and clever of the artist.Lucy
I suspect this was one of the great fears of the middle class Victorian at a time with no welfare state to fall back on.
does anyone perhaps know where the original painting is displayed? i really need it for a project in school!
