Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 31
The artist has several of these touching pieces in this collection. They are very valuable. Besides their excellence as works of art, they each tell their story with the most effective pathos. Here a poor peasant father and his two children are represented in the wood, where they have been to glean sticks for their humble fire at home. The old man, from weariness, has fallen asleep, but his watchful children have not failed to see the forest keeper and his bloodhound. Their fright is painful to behold, while the face of the sleeping father forms a strong contrast. The landscape is finely painted. [Pp. 18-19.]
