According to family tradition, this copy of Murillo’s 'An Urchin Mocking an Old Woman Eating Migas' was painted by Thomas Gainsborough (1727–1788). This is now thought to be unlikely. The original painting (also at Dyrham Park) was sold at auction in 1765, but was bought by another member of the Blathwayt family and later returned to Dyrham. This eighteenth-century copy was probably acquired as a substitute before the original was returned to the property.
