able as
A Child in a Cradle

and
Old Woman by a Half Door,
pictures representing
two very di
ff
erent stages in his life, the second of which had perhaps only just been
fi
nished. As in the ear-
lier painting, the Loeb collection’s
Portrait of the

-year-old Gudrun Reading
is also identi
fi
able.
This time, the large easel on the right holds a work exhibited in

entitled
Young Lad Returning from
the Hunt.
It is an evening scene of a room in a farm in which the mother, grandmother and younger sister
are looking delightedly at the young son showing o
ff
his bag for examination and admiration. The
fi
g tree
looks bigger, but it has not grown. It still draws the light and retains it in its crown, as does the young
hunter’s mother as she holds the lighted para
ffi
n lamp out towards her son.
The artist is given a less prominent role than four years previously, as though he is in the process of dis-
appearing into his works.
