Creator Biography

W. Flachenecker, German, 1792-1847.

Description

In a modest room, three men sit around a table on which documents rest, ready to be signed. The man in the middle gestures persuasively towards the man on the right, dressed in a red cap, who appears to be deep in thought. A woman lingers by the doorway, holding a child with one arm and placing a hand on her husband's shoulder as she looks over the scene.

Provenance

Back of the piece reads, "The Hard Bargain from the engraving by Flachenekker, Munich".
