Customer Question

I have a drawing which appears to be done in charcoal. it is of a woman sitting in a hay field on a bale of hay breast feeding a baby. there is a male figure laying beside her on her right. he is leaning on his left side watching. I found this drawing in a junk store back in the 80's. the original was the gold color on what I think plaster. had to put in new frame as the old frame was damaged beyond repair. The drawing was signed in the lower right corner by L Lhermitte dated 1888
