Descriptive titles

Painting "The Soldier's Return".


Exhausted, one armed, man in military uniform sits in a chair, embraced by a kneeling woman, another stands behind him. The man is dressed in a uniform with rank stripes on the folded sleeve and a medal on his chest, a helmet with a spike and a bird crest lies on the floor. The cottage has a curtained bed, tables, chairs and a sleeping baby in a cradle. A wall clock, willow pattern plates, candlesticks, fishing rod and other items can be seen in the background. The younger woman has been mending a shirt on the chair with her sewing box on the small table. The older woman, with a mop cap, was reading a book with her glasses.
