Hey, where you goin'?

The Awakening Conscience, 1851-53 by William Holman Hunt, Tate Gallery, London.

Hunt shows us a young woman who has seen the error of her ways just in time to save herself - it is explained that the song they are singing reminds her of her girlhood home and that what she is doing is wrong. Hunt was a deeply religious man and his faith drove his art.

and why was Holman Hunt so anti sex? (rhetorical question)
