Woman asleep beside a wheelbarrow of fruit, which is being stolen by two small boys
The woman is probably a street vendor, possibly in London or Portsmouth. The two rather louche idlers strolling past on the left give the impression of being complicit in the urchins' pilfering of fruit from the barrow. They are reminiscent of the Italian street and commedia dell'arte figures etched by the 17th-century engraver Jacques Callot, though it is perhaps unlikely Bray could have known these.
