is a 1908 painting by Hans von Bartels, a German painter, who was born on Christmas Day in 1856 and died on October 5, 1913. He was part of the Düsseldorf school of painting He painted in both oil and water color and is mainly known for his pictures of fishing life. I find this a homey scene, a cozy family gathering at a sunny window. I'm sure the life was hard, but they seem to appreciate their blessings.
