A young mother dandles a baby, while a little girl with a doll leans against her lap. 'A glance at these engravings is enough to see what one can say about this subject, the prettiest thing in the world. A young mother in the bloom of health playing with her children. Wbat a picture!' Handcoloured engraving from Pierre de la Mesangere's Le Bon Genre, Paris, 1817.
