Charles West Cope (1811-1890), The Thorn



Detail:


The elder sister is removing a thorn from a brother's hand; Cope is one of the most attractive Victorian genre painters in my view, rather sentimental in the style of the period but none the worse for that - this now has its own period charm like some Victorian architecture that one might have found brash at the time.
