    While the baby is lowered gently into the soapy bubbles, her elder sister looks on. The baby, whose name was Joan, also appears as a teenager in the painting Cynthia’s Birthday, which can be seen in the gallery across the wavy bridge.

    Can you find anything in this painting that reminds you of the yellow boots nearby?
