Parlor Decoration

ome printed advertisements served as decorative art in people's homes. This calendar for Osborne implements recalls "The Barefoot Boy," a popular print based on a John Greenleaf Whittier poem. "The Barefoot Boy" remained in print for at least thirty years and spawned a whole sub-genre of prints portraying romanticized scenes of rural childhood in America.
