I was going to comment that this is a nice bit of Victorian sentiment, but I find that it was painted in 1924; all the same, it is really quite Victorian, he was an old dog who hadn't changed his tricks. I assume she is almost dead rather than actually dead, it would be a bit morbid in the latter case, or at least a bit more so. Or do we find such paintings morbid because we no longer accept death as part of life, and prefer to look aside from it?

Evidently a cheerful spring day, as opposed to the wet and windy autumn that we have here at present.

The Sonnet, 1907. Lambert was born in St Petersburg to American and English parents, was educated in England, and then emigrated to Australia with his mother and sister. These paintings date from 1900-1916, while he was living in England. They have a pleasing touch of eccentricity.
