Description

A pretty and coquettishly dressed milkmaid stands full-face, her pails hung from a wooden yoke across her shoulders. Her expression and pose suggest that she is about to receive favourably the overtures of an elderly beau who stands ogling behind her (right), holding coins in his hand. In the background are farm-buildings and cows. c.1785/6. Hand-coloured mezzotint.
