Description: 
At age 13, Sophia Witherbe completed this needlework picture as part of her training at an all-female academy. Religious scenes, such as this of Joseph dreaming near a stream, were typical in schoolgirl art. These types of subjects reinforced religious education, while the needlework practice prepared girls for more 'practical' applications of the craft in the home.
