peasant boy

When I was in college, one of my professors required us to do master copies, which meant we had to choose a number of works by old master painters/artists and recreate them. I recreated "Peasant Boy", a pencil drawing originally done by Albert Anker in 1880. The image above is my pencil drawing done in 1979.

Albert Samuel Anker (April 1, 1831 – July 16, 1910) was a Swiss painter and illustrator who has been called the "national painter" of Switzerland because of his popular depictions of 19th-century Swiss village life.
