FRENCH FAMILY GATHERS AROUND THE PIANO

This vintage photograph is very effective at capturing a warm family moment. They appear to be in the family’s living room. Note the assorted photographs in the room as well as the flowers in a couple of vases. Mom stands by her elder daughter while the daughter is playing the piano. The mother is touching the sheet music which may indicate that she is turning the pages for her. The adorable younger daughter is sitting on her father’s lap and she is reading a book. Magnification reveals that she is reading a book called “Becassine”. Becassine is a comic strip character, in fact, the first female protagonist in the history of comics. The comic was first released in 1905.  Between 1913 and 1950, 27 volumes of the adventures of Bécassine were published. This photograph and board measures approximately  8 1/2″ x 10″. The actual image itself measures about 6 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.   SOLD
