This is the original Pen & Ink Wash by Robert Brook.

The English essayist, poet, and antiquarian, Charles Lamb and his sister were driven from one lodging to another by local gossip about how Mary Lamb had suffered a brainstorm and stabbed her mother to death. Charles and his sister Mary both suffered periods of mental illness.

On 22 September 1796, a terrible event occurred: Mary, "worn down to a state of extreme nervous misery by attention to needlework by day and to her mother at night," was seized with acute mania and stabbed her mother to the heart with a table knife.
