“Sunday Morning” Langsdorf Family Portrait
Family of Stephen Langsdorf, former city attorney for Augusta, the capitol city of Maine. Although the Lansdorfs live in a house of breathtaking beauty filled with antiques and art, their personal lifestyle has always been casual, friendly and accessible. After considering many much more formal compositions and costumes, including evening clothes, Christopher and the Langsdorfs decided on this warm grouping showing the family on a relaxed Sunday morning at home. Jeanne Fitzgerald Langsdorf’s slightly more formal pose and attire reflect the artist’s desire to bring out her natural elegance. Young Austin Langsdorf looks as though he has alighted to touch base quickly with his parents before running off to boyish pursuits, while his older sister, Natasha, is lost in her book.
