An unusually large original hand-colored etching by Charles Bartlett. One of his very early works showing a Dutch mother carrying her baby and holding hands with her young daughter as they walk along a country road. On the right horizon we see a farm house with several cows lounging in the front pasture. The coloring remains vivid with greens, blues, reds and pinks. Signed in the left bottom plate, "Bartlett", numbered "54/100" in bottom left margin, and signed in pencil in the bottom right margin, "Charles W. Bartlett".
A dedication has been written in the bottom margin at a later date, reading "Trudi, Mele Kalikimaka and Hauoli Makahiki Hou 1973 "[signature unreadable]
