Thoughtful, posed and solemn, this little boy and girl, are all dressed up in their Sunday clothes, in typical Victorian pose. This large oil on canvas has
great presence on a wall.
Very reminiscent of the photographic poses of the day. Perhaps this was intentional, or maybe the painting was taken from a photograph, which would have
been easier than keeping children still for a prolonged period.
Quite charming and very striking.
Well painted and signed lower left in very small red script:
W.J. Atkinson 4/4/89
In original frame and slip, big and heavy with minor losses.
