Both the mother and the son hold books in this sixth plate dag. I’ve owned this image once before and always thought the family looked quite painterly. The image is newly resealed as the glass had a bit of haze on it when it returned to me. The image is in very good condition with some mold spiders on the surface and a bit of spread from the gold tinting here and there. I really like the boy’s slight smile. The case is missing its top.
