This is an original 1914 color print of Bildnis Meines Sohnes which translates to Effigy of my Son, by Wilhelm Trubner. It is unclear if this is a painting of Trubner's son, or if the painting was made for this boys father. Trubner was a German realist painter. He was greatly influenced by the art of Manet during a trip to Paris, which can be seen in some of his work. He published writings on art theory in 1892 and 1989 which expressed the theory that "beauty must lie in the painting itself, not in the subject" which helped advance a philosophy of "art for art's sake".
