The painting is inscribed on the back by the artist with the relevant passage from 'A Sentimental Journey' and signed 'W.P.F 1853'. The situation depicts Parson Yorick and the gloveseller in her Paris shop: 'The beautiful Grisette look’d sometimes at the gloves, then sideways to the window, then at the gloves – and then at me. I was not disposed to break silence – I follow’d her example: so I look’d at the gloves, then to the window, then at the gloves, and then at her – and so on alternately.
