    I’ve only known the writer Ford Madox Ford. I wondered if there was a relationship between him and this painter. Indeed: Ford Madox Brown was Ford Madox Ford’s grandfather. The writer was born Ford Hermann Heuffer, but adopted his grandfather’s name in later life. There’s a bit of information about Ford here.

  3. I watched the short video on this painting and really enjoyed it. I will be watching the longer one later. I recently finished the new book by Louise Penny (“A World of Curiosities”) which revolved around a painting such as this – with many figures and meanings. (although that painting – “The Paston Treasure” – was painted much earlier.) Both paintings depicted a snapshot of society at the time. To me, that is so interesting. I love learning about art so much. I am subscribed to a channel on YouTube called “Perspective” which I only discovered this past autumn. It is wonderful and I think you would like it too, if you haven’t already heard of it.

    If you want to see more on “The Paston Treasure”, here is the link:

    I think you would enjoy seeing the painting.

    Thank you, as always for such a wonderful blog. I am really glad I follow you as you enrich my life and encourage my own sense of exploration. ❤ Have a great day!

  4. Without the two videos I’d never have understood most of the allusions in the painting.
