7 - 1st series nursery rhymes - 'Georgie-Porgie'
'When the Girls [sic] Came Out to Play' was the title recorded when this painting was originally gifted to Birkenhead Library - now placed in the Williamson Art Gallery.One example from Rachel's earlier (ca. 1905) set of (probably 12) children's nursery rhyme illustrations (courtesy of the Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead).260 mm x 415 mm. Watercolour and gouache on paper. It is interesting that Rachel has used wording that is either not entirely correct, or at least is unusual, in the text for this example as well as some others from this set of these rhymes!
