More about Three Children of Richard Arkwright with a Goat
The children in the painting are three of eleven children of Richard Arkwright Junior, a businessman who ran a cotton spinning mill in the 18th century.  Charles is really enjoying his ride on the back of the goat while his brother John supports him and his sister Elizabeth holds on to the goat’s horns.  Their grandfather, Sir Richard Arkwright Sr., was an inventor and a wealthy entrepreneur.  The painting is on loan from a private collector to the Tate Gallery in London.
