Illustration of a scene taken from the nursery rhyme Old Mother Hubbard. The watercolour depicts an old woman and her dog beside an empty cupboard, a reference to the first verse of the nursery rhyme, which reads:
Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard,
To give the poor dog a bone;
When she came there,
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.
