1. August Sander: Farm Children: 1920

    On a muddy roadside that reveals evidence of recent rain stand three children from a farming family with their dog and a toy horse. August Sander captured the familial relationship by focusing on the similarities in appearance and the intimacy of the grouping. The boy on the right, obviously the eldest, holds a toy whip erect like a staff, as though he already assumes his role as the leader of the group. Both of the older children position themselves as protective brothers to their infant sister, who sits in the carriage holding a doll. One brother rests his hand next to her on the carriage handle, while the other leans in toward her, possibly holding her hand behind the dog’s head.
