The 'Scherzo' as shown here represents a game between a dark-haired female holding a large bunch of green grapes, with further purple ones at her left side, and a small child who pulls on her blouse revealing her shoulder. This painting was part of a programme of wall decoration for the entrance hall for the new Royal Academy of Music, built in 1911–1912 to a design by Sir Ernest George and Alfred Yeates. The paintings were removed prior to the official opening of the building. Located in 2004, they were the subject of conservation and were restored to the Academy on long-term loan with the kind permission of the Rosenholm Foundation, Denmark (Rosenholm Castle).
