Unattributed. "A Joyous Band."
New York: The Knapp Company, 1893. 18 x 26. Chromolithograph by Lautz Bros. & Co.
Large and dramatic, this chromolithograph from the end of the 19th century depicts a merry group of players or dancers(?) cavorting in a meadow, carrying an older man along with them to share their festivities. Though there is no food or beverage in sight, one wonders if they aren't at least slightly under the influence.
