Additional information:

There is a story behind this famous picture that says the artist painted his blind daughter as the young girl. In the original painting, she has her eyes closed and in a second rendition, her eyes are open. This does add to the overall compelling nature of this touching image.
There have been changes made to the painting including colors of dress and hair as well as background. No one seems to be certain which represents the original. It is also said that you can see this picture hanging on the wall in the movies: “Manchurian Candidate” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. There is also a copy hanging at the St. Francis Hotel in St. Augustine, FL.
