Surprisingly Queen Victoria did not commission this painting. Instead, Wells was inspired by the description of the incident he read in the Diaries of Miss Frances Williams Wynn and first attempted a much larger version which he exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1880 (Tate Gallery, London). This painting is a later version and the figures are grouped against a different background. Wells has included a portrait of Princess Victoria’s father, the Duke of Kent and the still life objects on the table – a ball, book and flowers – allude to the childish pursuits the Princess will now have to abandon.
Signed and dated: HT Wells.1887.
Presented to Edward VII in 1903 by the artist’s daughters, Mrs Street and Mrs Hadley, after the artist’s death
