During a visit to the Taft Museum in Cincinnati earlier this year, two very special young men were aghast at the "The Cobblers Apprentice" by Frank Duveneck. They couldn't imagine why this boy was smoking.
"Is that boy smoking?"
"Yes, but he's not supposed to smoke"
"Why is his mother letting him smoke?"
Try as we could to explain that this was painted a long time ago before people understood that smoking wasn't good for you, it didn't matter, they were still perplexed. I was fortunate to capture that moment.
