This scan does little justice to the trio it depicts. A small boy dominates the center of the image. He is rendered clearly wearing a white lace collar and pantaloons. His mother (to the right) is less clear. She holds his hand over the page of a favorite book. The father is the other prominent presence in this image. Legs crossed, hand tucked in his vest, and arm raised with a cigar between his fingers, he is the epitome of the petit-bourgeois.
