Description: Very fine impression on white wove paper with good margins. The scene is a crowded Paris square at night in advance of the fireworks. A small boy, wearing his father's top hat, sits on his shoulders while the father also holds a young girl in his arms. His face shows weariness and resignation. The subtext reads: "A father is a platform supplied by nature." The series is Scenes from Marriage.
