Abstract:
Three generations of a family gather around a humble hearth, forming an image of domestic happiness in a modest setting. The father, seated on a chair set in front of a fireplace, lifts a small child. The mother is seated to his right, holding the hand of one of child while a third plays a drum set on chair. An old man leans on the chair that holds the drum, a bed visible behind him, while at his feet lies a game bag containing a rabbit. On the mantlepiece a cat sleeps beside a lantern.
