Description:Full length group picture of four people: A seated man wearing a military captain’s uniform is holding an infant on his lap. The child is wearing a white urban dress. Next to him, another child wearing a white urban dress and boots is sitting on a wooden table. A woman is standing behind them, resting her hands on the backrest of the chair and on table. A painted canvas backdrop is creating the illusion of the scene being set in a park.
