Object:Studio portrait of the Tranka family
Description:Full length shot of a group of nine people: a seated elderly woman, an younger woman and a man, two young men standing behind them, and four boys - two of them sitting, two standing. All are wearing urban clothes, only one of the younger men is in military uniform. A painted canvas backdrop is creating the illusion of the scene being set in a lounge.
