Guest Book

A spectacular watercolor painting, on organic material, giving an amusing insight into family life in the 18th century. Painted in a charming and naive style, the exhausted father is seen sleeping in a chair, while all 5 of the children, 4 of whom are sitting at the dining table, are clamoring for attention. The family, judging from the furniture and clothing, is well-to-do. The frame is later and is black painted wood.

The condition of the painting is excellent, with no cracks, chips, bowing, or restoration. Sight size is 4 1/2" by 4 1/4", and the framed size is 5 7/8" by 5 5/8".
