Description:Full length shot of a group of five people: a man in urban clothes is seated in between two women in light town dresses - one is holding an infant on her lap, the other is holding flowers. Behind them there is a man in military uniform with medals. Painted canvas backdrop, which creates the illusion of the scene being set in nature.

Stefan Ivanov Kraev (1857 - 1916) was an officer and military judge, participant in the Serbo-Bulgarian War 1885 and Head of Department at the Bulgarian Ministry of War (~1904).
