"Mother reading to children." Cover illustration of Nos Loisirs, Dec 1, 1923. Gouache, graphite, and ink with gold painted border on paper mounted to thin board. Inscribed and signed "à mon vieil ami/René Manevy/Cordialement/Djoz," in lower left image. 


Nos Loisirs was published as an illustrated Sunday supplement of Le Petit Parisien, the French daily newspaper, from 1906 to 1940 (halting publication during World War I). This sweet scene of a mother reading with her children is representative of the type of imagery that Nos Loisirs featured on its covers around the time the publication adopted the subtitle "Revue de la Femme et du Foyer" in 1920.
