Presented for sale is a 19th century watercolor and gouache en grisaille illustration depicting a 18th century American Colonial period Christmas party. In the foreground, a young woman in formal dress is being introduced to a well-dressed Gentleman, while others observe the exchange in the background. The men appear to be in military uniforms. The illustration is signed and illegibly titled in the lower margin.

The illustration is by German artist Max Francis Klepper (1861 – 1907.) He was born in Zeitz, Germany and immigrated to the United States in 1876. He lived in Logansport, Indiana where he first exhibited at an art show and specialized in landscapes. He attended art school in New York and in Munich from 1887 to 1889 where he developed an interest in painting horses and other animals. Returning to the United States he exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago and contributed illustrations for many well-known publications. He depicted scenes from the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and the Boer War as well as several well-known books. His illustration art has become most collectible.

The illustration is in excellent condition having been recently re-framed and re-matted with a conservation glass cover.
