the image is a near copy of the "Bradshaw Children" by Joseph Wright of Derby of 1766-68. There is a boy missing and the background differs. I am surprised to see the title Miss Wright; Miss Wright.
See also Nicolson, Joseph Wright of Derby, Painter of Light,Vol. 2,1968, plate 57, page 34. Paul might have chosen the wrong title.?
I do not take myself as a connoisseur, just wonder.
Best regards
