Old Man and Baby

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description In a dimly lit interior a smiling elderly man, seated on a ladder-back chair, amuses an infant with a toy soldier. The child is seated in a "kakstoel," or training chair. On a rush-covered street at the right is a piece of knitting. This rustic interior is characteristic of the artist's depictions of peasant life in the eighties and nineties.
Provenance Murray Young, Billings Sales, American Art Association [shipment by D&M], January, 14, 1926 [from Ed King's Notebook, Walters-Anderson Correspondence, etc.]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1926, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
