A classic everyday domestic subject by Bratby, the best known of the “kitchen sink” artists. Take a look at the other photographs here to see how well it looks in an actual fireplace!

What makes this work quite unique is another painting on the other side of the canvas, a still life of flowers, which has been artfully reframed by Harry Eagle.

The frame allows the work to be displayed free-standing, as shown in our photographs here. It could also be fitted into a revolving cheval mirror type of outer frame that would allow it to be rotated.
