This nostalgic painting recalls the simpler days of childhood when children rode their bicycles to the neighborhood ice cream shop. The boy, whose bike is smaller than the other two, is probably tagging along behind an older brother, something many of us with siblings probably remember.
Masters builds the narrative through his meticulous observation of details- we see in the picture window the OPEN sign, the “Grade A Inspection” sign, and, inside, the soda jerk, all framed within the golden spandrels. Looking closer, in the second-story windows above, we see the daylight from the windows in the adjacent wall, which serves only to enhance the realism of this delightful painting.
