Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki   1726-1801

Great picture of a German raised hearth.  I hope this boy got a little of the meat when he was done with his long, hot and boring job.

Detail: boy, chair, firewood, basket, food, raised hearth, fire, tongs, bucket, brick, spit, reflector, basting tray, brazier, bowl, meat, spoon.
