Print and Picture Collection
View of the northwest corner of Rittenhouse Square with the tower of Holy Trinity Church rising above the treetops. Shows people enjoying the tranquility of the park: a man in the foreground stands in contemplation looking across the reflecting pool; a nanny pushes a baby stroller along one of the main walkways, two well-dressed ladies follow, one holding a parasol; a small boy watched over by his nanny plays with his toy boat; and a young girl sits on the balustrade surrounding the pool, visible behind her is the The Lion Crushing a Serpent by the French sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye.
