A Cottage
1775 – 1851
Gift of Gilbert M. Frimet
A child sits inside a fence of barbed wire upon the bare dirt ground; beyond the fence lies nothing but burnt tree trunks. He is dressed in rags, and his feet are completely bandaged. Eyes sunken and lips pursed, he holds his hands up in a surrender-like state. It is implied by the title that this child is Jewish and is most likely being depicted inside one of the death camps during the Holocaust.

A river starts at the bottom of the composition, taking up the foreground, and then winds back into the middle of the composition. A tree on the left bank of the river hangs down over the edge, its leaves almost touching the water. Reflections of the trees and banks can be seen along the edges of the river. In the background is a more heavily wooded area, and some birds can be seen in the sky. One bird is located in the middle of the sky, while a cluster of faintly depicted birds can be seen on the right. The edges of the composition mostly fade into simple hatching and line work, especially along the banks of the river in the bottom corners of the page, and where the trees meet the edges of the page on the left and right.
