Christmas Morning, Breakfast, Horace Pippin
School Arts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v103 n6 p31 Feb 2004
This brief article describes the life and the art of Horace Pippin. It focuses on one work called "Christmas Morning, Breakfast" that is part of a series of works based on Pippin's childhood memories. The painting depicts a very modest room, including exposed wallboards where chunks of plaster have fallen off. The room is very tidy, but rather bare, with only a few sturdy, wooden furnishings and three striped rag-rugs on the floor. By looking closely at the mother in the painting, her life of unrelenting work becomes apparent through her bowed back. A list of suggested activities is included.
