In honor of Father’s Day this Sunday, we present a vision of leisure with A Gentleman at Breakfast. The gentleman in question is depicted in an informal pose relaxing and reading the newspaper at the breakfast table with his dog in attendance. His clothing suggests he intends to go hunting later. Happy Father’s Day, Dads—may you get to enjoy all of your favorite activities!
