Two Italian women in peasant dress with headscarves, standing together against an interior background. Both stand looking to the left, one woman carrying a baby in her arms. The painting is realistic, both women have a vacant expression on their faces, and are looking off in the direction they are facing, to the left. The artist studied at the Manchester School of Art, as well as Italy and Paris. She later established a successful exhibiting society.
