|Commentary:||In a letter to Alex H. Lappe, Esq., Pittsburgh Athletic Association, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Schoonover writes: “I had a hard matter getting the little boy to look as if he were really asleep, finally I had a youngster from a telegraph company to come and pose: the studio was warm and the bench comfortable as benches go: the little fellow was tired and he went to sleep: and you have the rest of the painting.” (archives, correspondence)|
