Description In this lovely marginal image, two fashionably dressed ladies set off on an outing. The net held by one of them indicates that they are chasing butterflies, but the artist does not depict the prize they seek. He leaves it to us to imagine the rest of their day - the fun of chasing and catching butterflies is ours.
