Artistic Advent: Christmas Morning

Today's Advent artwork is dedicated to rocknrollgidget, from whom I recently received a warm and toasty holiday card! Thanks!

Ernest W. Watson (1884–1969)
Christmas Morning, 1947
color linoleum cut on paper

Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington

This is another work that qualifies as "Christmas art" only because the artist chose to include the word "Christmas" in the title. I assume that this lino cut is a scene he observed on Christmas morning, but who can say? It's pretty, regardless.
