Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 5
The interest now generally felt in these "representative men" tenders this and the following painting (No. 6) doubly attractive. The scene is "lunch time" in the forest, a favorite resort of Lessing and his brothers. The landscape is by Lessing, Boser having the honor of the figures. As a composition, it is full of grace and life, while for truthfulness of the portraits it is of inestimable value. [P. 10: see entry 01550006 for other work noted in this commentary.]
