Naked woman lies supine; bed stained with blood; attendant bathes infant in wooden bucket.
An apparently bald older woman sits combing her wig, which fits over a wooden mold and is steadied with its rod held between her knees. Her corset opens a bit at her back, showing that it is unlaced. (Virginia Anderson 05/10/94)
