Is this the apology? Is he professing his love, or could simply be begging; this Victorian boy and girl are part of a very versatile vintage image. A young boy is on his knees in the grass beseeching a little girl for something. She’s listening but her body language would indicate she might not by buying his story. This is such a wonderful image for anyone looking for humorous images of children for their next project.
This vintage drawing was included in the vintage children’s book Holly Berries. It was illustrated by Ida Waugh (d. 1919) and released in 1881.
