This is a 'pot-boiler' and shows 'a girl going to school in a smiling summer Sunday morning, singing her hymn as she walks along'. The model was Miriam Wilkinson, a labourer's daughter Hunt met while staying with Thomas Combe at a farmhouse near Hastings in Kent in 1858. The painting was completed in October 1859 and bought by Combe before the opening of an exhibition at Gambart's gallery.
