Adolf Eberlé - First Shooting Lesson

Adolf Eberlé (1843-1914), German
First Shooting Lesson, undated

OIL ON PANEL, 8 x 10 inches

During the 1860s and 1870s, a number of success­ful genre artists emerged from studies at the Royal Academy in Munich to paint lighthearted scenes of everyday life such as this one by Adolf Eberlé. A young boy dressed in traditional Bavarian cos­tume tries out the new crossbow that the older man, perhaps his father or grandfather, has just built at his workbench. Wealth, the paint­ing suggests, is not a prerequisite for happiness.
