Drawn with the sketchbook inverted. For The Unpaid Bill, or the Dentist Reproving his Son’s Prodigality (collection of the Schindler Family)1 and related drawings in this sketchbook see comment to folio 77 recto (D06486; Turner Bequest XCIX 73). This is a much slighter, almost indecipherable version of a similar composition to 77 recto, showing the dentist seated at left, his wife to right and their son standing to her right rather than between his parents as in the picture.
Butlin and Joll 1984, pp.61–2 no.81 (pl.91).
