Photograph | Photograph Number: 97024

Two watercolor paintings by Simon Jeruchim depicting the home of his rescuer, Madame Prim.

Above is the room where the artist slept. He shared the room with Madame Prim. He slept on the right, and she on the left. She was very arthritic and needed the chair to help her get in and out of bed. The floors were made of dirt, and a few slate tiles were kept on the floor near the fireplace for cooking. Here they made soup and stews from potatoes. On the mantel and on either side of the fireplace are depictions of saints. The bottom painting shows the other side of the room where the younger children slept.
