Canadian artist Paul Peel specialized in painting children and the activities they take part in. The young biologist here has taken an interest in a large, brown toad. Peel won a prize at the 1890 Paris Salon, making him one of the first Canadian artists to achieve international recognition in his lifetime. His work is intimate, warm and sentimental, drawn from domestic scenes of everyday life.
