Painting of a small boy at Gammelgarden Museum

Painting of a small boy, typical of the early 1900's when boys wore dresses and long curls until about age 3. Notice that this painting mirrors the paper doll collection in the frame. The painting shows a member of the Malmquist family. Rev. A.J. Malmquist served Elim Lutheran during the WW I years; his grandson, Jim "Moose" serves as Gammelgarden president and donated this painting.

The painting is located in the back bedroom of the Präst Hus. This room also includes a set of bookshelves made from thread spools and a baby buggy.
