A Morning Bath



A Morning Bath

This scene presents a dusky African mother in the act of giving her struggling pickaninny a bath in a tub of suds. This is a clear and distinct picture in which the contrast between the complexion of the bather and the white soapsuds is strongly marked. A very amusing and popular subject.
