In this nostalgic themed oil and graphite on board, Bill Medcalf offers a view of a sleigh arriving at a rural family home. Evoking memories of ancestral Christmases past, the scene features a smiling group of three generations of kin enjoying a snowy morning. The mustached man and woman holding a baby are featured in many images created by Medcalf, and presumably these were intended to become a year long calendar, which tells a story of a family through time. Centrally featured in these images are different modes of transportation and sentimental moments of parties throughout the year. Medcalf’s power at evoking the past, and his deft artistry made him one of Brown & Bigelow’s star artist’s throughout the 1950s.
