I love this naive Scottish family portrait, because they are so dour and dreich, not one of them is smiling!

 It shows a new middle class man his wife , their two children and his incredibly miserable mother and sister in law.   All painted within  a box square room with patterned carpet.

Watercolour on paper c.1850, framed in painted faux mahogany effect frame.
