The painting depicts two young women sitting up in bed, fully dressed, each holding an infant. They are traditionally said to be sisters, although the different coloured eyes of the ladies and children show that they are not identical twins. The babies are swaddled in red christening robes.
The painting was known to be in the collection of Thomas Cholmondeley (pronounced ‘Chumley’), the third son of Sir Hugh and Lady Mary Cholmondeley. The style of the painting would seem to date it to 1600-10, and it might represent the daughters or nieces of Sir Hugh and Lady Cholmondeley.
