One of his better uses of chiaruscuro, with his typical eye for the beauty that children can make even of ordinary things. And don't you love that bolt of red that both draws and repels the eye, forcing one to look into the littlest girl's eyes to avoid gazing deeply into the shadows. Lovely painting in many ways.

A little aside: None of Bolts daughters married. Significance of statement=nothing, just a little art trivia.
