Watercolour – Boy practising the flute

A delightful watercolour painting of a young boy playing a wooden flute. The boy appears to be practising the flute at a table in the kitchen of his 19th century home. There are lovely domestic touches – the music propped up on jars and jugs, the bellows, a key on the wall, the stone floor. The boy is smartly dressed and seems to be quite a well-to-do little chap who is very intent on getting everything right. Perhaps he is practising right after some breakfast before going to school or even church.

The watercolour painting is signed ‘M. Haywood. 70’ (presumed 1870) in the right corner. It is mounted in an old gilt frame and covered with glass.
