Father and Child
Interior of a study with father reading a book sitting on a couch and daughter fast asleep in his lap. #665 (bottom center)
Currier & Ives specialized in creating prints that pictured life in the ideal American home. This evening scene shows a father and young girl reading together before bedtime. The girl is fast asleep on the sofa at her father’s side and is using his lap as if it were her pillow. The man remains engaged in the text and seems unaware of the sleeping girl nearby.
