    Brunswick
    (228 items)

    Hello CW On this Sunday morning from South Alabama!!

    This is the iconic picture that has been around awhile..an older gentleman giving thanks before a simple meal.
    My wife picked this up while I was away and it now hangs above our archway that separates our dining room from our living room. Our ceilings downstairs are 10 feet high, so the picture is up there!
    It measures 1.5'×2.0' in a older solid wood frame.
    I have seen this from time to time most of my life, yet I know nothing of the artist or History. Any help would be most appreciated!! No markings or inscriptions.

    Thank You,
    Thomas.

      Woo hoo! CW user mp.kunst comes through again:

      *snip*

      Grace is a photograph by Eric Enstrom. It depicts an elderly man with hands folded, saying a prayer over a table with a simple meal. In 2002, an act of the Minnesota State Legislature established it as the state photograph.
