The Schoolmaster; a man with a pointed beard wearing a gown, neckerchief and beret, carefully filing a quill by the light of a candle at a table, listening to a girl who sits with her back to the viewer, reading from an illuminated book, while a boy to right sits writing and another behind him stands to light his candle from the central flame, with a map, birdcage, shelf and slate hanging on the wall, and a lady carrying a lantern in the doorway to right; unlettered proof. Mezzotint
