(no. 69b; figure 96); of these paintings, however, some standard dimension is hinted by a prevalence (not an average) among the copies. Thus, it seems likely that the original Boy Peeling Fruit (nos. 50a; SOc; SOd; 50i, figure 2) may have been about 52 X 65 em. , although one of Finson' s copies (no. 69b; figure 96) is slightly larger.
