B. Pothast print
I believe I have a Pothast print although not signed. The picture is in Pothast's style and shows a woman seated at a small table and a small child looking at a baby while holding a small toy in her hand.
There is a pair of wooden shoes in the lower right hand corner of the picture. Can you tell me anything about it? There is also a number on the back. GP558

Bernhard Pothast print
I have a 8x12 print with a pained window on the left, some flowers on a table, a little girl standing at the table, a girl looking at a paper (or book) on the opposite side(she is sitting) and another girl standing, a woman sitting to the right is observing the children at the table. A small child's chair is to the right of the woman (empty). The print is in a gold, wood frame with a brass plate at the bottom that says "Reading Lesson" Bernhard Pothast, copyright 1933 Mead Johnson and Co.
My question is when I've looked for this print a different one comes up for "the Reading Lesson". I can't seem to find this one ANYWHERE. Does anyone know the name of this print?
Bernard pothast framed painting.
I have,what I believe to be an original framed painting called "Dutch Family Group". The frame isbeautiffully sculped and carved, as I have seen in other older Pothast works. The glass is poured glass wich,I believe helps date tis back to the mid 1920s or just a bit later. It has been handed down for 4 generations. Does anyone have more inf on this piece? I would appreciate any response. Thank You Jim

Behind the mother is a chest of drawers and in front of the chest of drawers is a childs chair. The baby's arms are reaching up towards her sister and her eyes are wide open.
