    The boys throw spitballs off the balcony at passing strollers while the girl mugs for the painter.

    Wondering when their parents are going to leave so that they may finally invite their friends over to throw a party..

    Good point. We hardly paid each other more attention before the gizmos.

    They all take it in turn to whistle 5 notes.

    Enlarged image can be found here, or (slightly smaller) at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    The Hirschsprung Family Portrait (link shows father’s Wikipedia page, not to be confused with his pediatrician brother, after whom the disease is named) is shown, with a different coloration image (click-to-enlarge image compliments of its Google Cultural Institute page, mouse over title there for all their names), and described, by its current-location page (Google translation has much more than clicking the ENGLISH toggle).

    It also has this video (fullscreen and German CC is active, sort of fun even if you don’t understand Danish):


    Perhaps if I did, she explains, as the painting’s translated page does, why everyone, except the daughter, has their eyes averted. The artist’s Wikipedia page, list of paintings, and collection (more under Subcategories at each level).

    Third, of the 3 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    P.S. In looking for this painting, I came across this (Google translated), showing Mr. Melcher’s blog is also read in Russia.

    I show it because the author went to the trouble of not only translating the caption, etc., below the painting, to Russian, but also making it part of the image (why Google doesn’t translate it) — that isn’t part of the image in the blog, like it is at GoComics (so far, some haven’t appeared here).

    Wow, Hirschsprung had eleven kids. Thank goodness for modern birth control.

    Remember, kids: Early withdrawal doesn’t prevent deposits.

    Not sure where you got that from. Everything I saw (my links pointed to) says there were 5 children in the family, 4 boys and a girl.

    My OH is living proof. Guess daddy didn’t have good rhythm.

    Those guys reading are doing it all wrong. They should also be striding along a busy street, bumping into everyone.

    It’ll be even worse when tablet phones are implanted into the brain.
