Frederick Daniel Hardy - After the Party

Tonight’s ‘Ball” selection is by English painter Frederick Daniel Hardy. In this scene it appears that an elderly servant has fallen asleep while cleaning up after yet another party. A fellow servant, this one much younger, approaches to awaken her aged companion, perhaps asking if she needs anything, and I imagine she feels compassion for the old woman. Maybe the young servant will simply let her sleep, taking the extra workload on her shoulders.
