Some of Hans Braun's best drawings appeared in the book "Indeed", said to be an account of girlish corporal punishments seen by one Edith Cantor.
Once again the girls in the background are also worthy of study. Just look at those jutty bottoms in those tight and close fitting drawers.
The full drawing catches the moment when a second girl has just been caned and her drawers pulled down in front of the crowded hall. The first girl is crying and rubbing her well punished bottom, and seems to have been birched for a second offense that term. The third girl is about to be taken out for hers, having heard the cries of the first two miscreants and the swish of the birch and cane.
