"Throwing off Her Weeds" by Richard Redgrave in 1846. Held at the V Museum. This image shows a young widow at the seamstresses shop. She is looking to discard her black mourning clothes (called widow's weeds) in favor of a purple half-mourning ground. Symbols in the picture tell us that she is looking to be married again soon.
