Scope and content

Study of a woman standing in a body of water washing clothes. Eaux bonnes probably refers to a town, the modern Eaubonne in Val-d'Oise, north of Paris and Épinay-sur-Seine. Lady Falkland was in France during 1839-40 according to the datable French watercolours (1990-207-79X, -80X, -83X). This was just before she went to Nova Scotia with her husband, who was governor there from 1840-46.
See 1990-207-48X or -49X about Mrs. Wyatt, possibly a companion of Falkland's.
