A smiling boy, wearing somewhat tarrered clothing and barefoot, stands holding perhaps turnips in one hand and with the other a sack over his shoulder. The clothes look warm enough for early Autumn, and there are indeed leaves on the ground at his feet.

The original title in the book is given as Un rapazuelo, and it is an engraving of a picture painted by Ludovico (Ludwig) Knaus, a German painter who flourished especially in the second half of the 19th century.

[Portugese original extract follows the Google Translation]

The raptor of our engraving is a very young boy sympathetic, with no other occupation than traveling the little ones places in your country in search of old rags, iron and glass waste. Passing the chopped by a field located on the side of the road, has made provision of groceries, and satisfied with his feat is on his way Quiet and smiling at the domestic household.

The author of the beautiful painting that we like today offer readers of El Mundo Ilustrado it is according We express above, Ludovico Knaus, the king of painters of this genre among the Germans. — R.

(p. 62)

The text in the book reads as follows:

El rapazuelo de nuestro grabado es un muchacho muy simpático, sin otra ocupación que recorrer los pequeños lugares de su país en busca de trapos viejos, desperdicios de hierro y cristal. Al pasar el picaron por un campo situado á orillas del camino, ha hecho provisión de comestibles, y satisfecho de su hazaña se encamina tranquilo y sonriente al doméstico hogar.

El autor del lindo cuadro que hoy tenemos el gusto de ofrecer á los lectores de El Mundo Ilustrado es, según expresamos más arriba, Ludovico Knaus, el rey de pintores de este género entre los alemanes.—R.
