circa 1875. Hand-coloured lithograph. 17 ¾ x 24 3/8 inches, plus black-printed border, 1½ inches, extending to the sheet edges. Image size (including text): 17 3/4 x 24 1/4 inches. Sheet size: 20 1/2 x 26 7/8 inches.
This large, colorful and lively depiction of two children and their mother near one of the lakes in Central Park is typical of the prints issued by Charles Schile, a German immigrant, whose black borders are a common feature. The goat pulled children's carriage and the luxurious clothing denote an aristocratic New York family.
