ADOLPH VON MENZEL
Boy with Ball, 1844
The first impression almost seems as if we were looking at a girl. However, the frock and the hairstyle were typical for boys of the Biedermeier period.
This little fellow was
kind enough to forget his ball for a while in order
to be portrayed. He is definitely one of the real
Berlin boys - one can see that his eyes are very
awake and interested, and he is also quite
uninhibited in a natural self-secure way ...
