This genre painting depicts an old man with his two grandchildren – a girl in a white pinafore and a boy wearing a dark jacket and hat. They are standing in a yard with a fence and houses behind. The work is typical of a number of charming small-scale paintings of village children Charles painted in the 1880s whilst living in South Harting, Sussex.
