The smaller child’s right arm is bent, holding a doll thrown casually over his left shoulder. The wife enters from an adjoining room and pushes the curtain to one side. There are two versions of this scene with this version, painted in 1841, being the first. Danhauser prepared design sketches and detailed studies for both versions and painted exactly according to the composition of the initial drawing. There is variation in the small child with doll and the artist in the foreground. A mezzotint of Danhauser’s painting by Andreas Geiger dated 1843 is owned by the Albertina in Vienna.
