Near one of the doors to my workshop, I hung this photo. Next to the sticks and strips that I just couldn’t throw away yet. I remember it hanging in the milking room of the barn at my maternal Grandpa’s home in NW Ohio. Later my parents had cleaned it up and hung it in their house. Mom did not know anything about the picture. I claimed it when we children were dividing things up. It was both an interesting picture and frame I wanted to have as a momento of that side of my family tree.
I was hoping that perhaps some of my European friends might shed some light on it. These monks are having a good time down in the cellar. Telling a story of some sort no doubt that not everyone should hear. They are winemakers, it would appear. You can see the small wooden barrel one is holding and if you look carefully to the right side where the guy is hiding and listening behind the small door, you will see bottles laying on their side.
The print itself was tinted with flesh tones. Typical of prints from the 30’s and 40’s but I have no idea how old it is.
Thank you for checking this out and perhaps helping me learn more about this old print.
