a Steinberg Family Photo

1 November, 2010

Steinberg’s portrait of a 24 person family reunion (plus a dog and a multitude of wall bound ancestors):

Everyone family member has inherited the family facial structure and expression, and their postures are varied but similar.  Notice how all the men, including those in portrait form, lean casually on something, be it inanimate object  or a child.  Particularly amusing is the man who rests his hand on his son’s head, who uses his little brother for the same purpose in turn.  Other points worth mentioning include the exotic plants growing out of the women’s hats, the child who is smaller than the pup and the fact that all the men and boys are bald.

    Wow! You certainly are a diligent observer! Now that you got me looking, even the bald man in the picture on the far left on the wall is leaning with his elbow on something, although I cannot tell what it is. … Maybe there is nothing there to lean on but he is leaning on the air anyway. and of course the other guy in the other picture is leaning on something as well – a table in this case. …. And why is the vase on the right off kilter?
