This picture, and the one I have just taken down, was painted by William Charles Penn. It seems to be known as “Family Group” although I have seen somewhere, “The Family at Breakfast”. It is dates as c. 1910.
The one I have just taken down is here . . .
Edit : 5 June 2021.
I have had the top painting as my desk top for a week or two now, and I begin to feel like one of the family. Father stoically reads his paper. Mother looks across at her daughter eating a soldier with her egg as though she does not quite approve of something. The other daughter at the head of the table, looks a bit blank as though she is taking it all in, but reserving judgement. And the son, drinks his tea or coffee – and does his cup holding hand disguise a little wry smile ?
