John Koch, often described as the leading society portraitist in his day, is best known for his luminous depictions of New England's elite. "Two Children" portrays a young boy and girl as they share a moment of quiet solitude. Koch has cropped the composition and pressed their figures against the picture plane, and thus he allows viewers to participate in this intimate and tender scene.
