“My mother frequently referred to a facial similarity which was predominant  amongst her relatives as “the Towns look”. In this painting she appears with her great grandmother, grandmother, mother, daughter and niece. The family resemblance is unmistakable. The words on the pink ribbon connecting the ladies give a flavor of  the changing world around them.”
