A monk sitting on the right, hands tucked into his sleeves, laughing as he listens to the confession of a man who kneels against his chair, holding his hat and watched by an old woman wearing a headscarf who stands in the background to the left in an open doorway, holding a finger to her lips; a stoop on the wall in the background.
Ex Collection: Hon. Christopher Lennox-Boyd. CS: undesribed; the British Museum state that this is a later state with added creases in the clothing.
