Snap the Whip, by Homer Winslow

Snap The Whip

This scene reminds me of Huckleberry Finn when Tom Sawyer creates a band of robbers called “Tom Sawyer’s Gang”. In each of these works, the atmospheres are similar. We see in this painting that the boys are rowdy and youthful, creating an atmosphere of innocence and joy. This is also shown in Huckleberry Finn because the boys in Tom Sawyer’s gang have youthful innocence and ignorance. They do not understand what being a robber truly is and the reader senses the atmosphere of this youthful joy.
