The New Citizen is the third print in the Pillars of a Nation Comparison Series of prints.
“This painting takes place around the turn of the century. A new citizen is about to be born — the first of this family to be born in the new country. I wanted the expression on the girl’s face to show excitement and anticipation as she feels the baby move. When a new baby is born, it’s a wonderful thing, but for an immigrant family, it must have been especially wonderful.”
