1900? Kate Greenway Print "The Fable of the Girl and Her Milk Pail."  6” x 8.5”.  $9.99 from Lawrence Camerena, April, '08. 

The caption on the back reads, “from a water-colour drawing in the possession of W. Finch, Esq”.  The print of the painting offers an unusual view of the girl who spilled her milkpail in three ways.  Scenes of this fable usually depict the young woman out in the midst of nature.  They seldom include onlookers, like the two children gawking at her predicament.  The young woman is usually more disconsolate.  Here she seems somehow unexcited over what has happened.
