Family in Camp Room
[ bio ]
Gift of Madeleine Sugimoto and Naomi Tagawa, Japanese American National Museum
Stretched and framed.
Family of four in a room with an old-style woodburning stove. A boy in red writes on a sheet of paper while a girl in green reads a book as they sit facing the viewer at table in the foreground right. At left, a woman sits on a stool facing the stove with her back to the viewer. She is dressed in a green jacket and brown skirt. On the other side of the stove, behind the children, a man with a mustache reads the newspsper. A steaming kettle sits on the black stove. Behind the man, on the right, is a small American flag, an alarm clock, a photograph and a vase with red flowers sitting on a mantel. In the background left, a broom leans against the wall, bristles upward.
