William P. W. Dana, Heart’s Ease, 1863, oil on canvas, 95.3 x 121.3 cm, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Source

The Met online doesn’t provide any information on this particular painting, which is a shame because it looks to be a depiction of a child on his or her deathbed, so it would be nice to know something of their identity. If anyone has a printed source that might be of some help, then please let me know!
