Title Black Boy Warming Himself by a Stove
Description This interesting interior portrait oil painting is from the 19th century American School. The painting is of a black boy warming his hands in front of a stove. He is sat and on a barrel and bellows and coals lay on the floor beside him. Although he is in profile, his head is turned to look at the viewer. One can only guess from the scene and his dress at the social history behind this painting but it makes it a very interesting work.
