An elegantly dressed woman combs the long, curly locks of her son. In the background a maidservant enters the room carrying a pitcher of water. She looks sternly at the little girl sticking out her tongue in a mirror. Netscher emphasizes the importance of good upbringing. A prudent mother takes this task seriously, assisted by her maidservant.
