The Grandmother's Wardrobe

I came across this extraordinary painting entitled
'The Grandmother's Wardrobe' (1912) by George Phoenix (1863–1935) who lived through the Victorian and Edwardian periods and painted landscapes, figurative art and portraiture  apart from also being  a sculptor.
This image is truly suggestive and emblematic of so many things which entice me - vintage, antique fashion, memories of times gone by, beautiful old clothing and exquisite painting technique.
This painting should be found at the Wolverhampton Art Gallery - has anybody viewed it recently?
