"The Beginners," a 24x36 Bud Breen painting, is actually titled "The Begainers." Mr. Breen sometimes had his own way of spelling things.
The painting depicts a dance hall in the Old West. A banner over the door reads, "RANCHERS GET-TOGATHER." Another example of Breen's unique spelling or a play on words? Inside the dance hall the band plays on a low stage, sconces on the wall provide warm light, and couples dance their way around the room. The band's name is only partially revealed by their banner, "[?] RIVER BOYS," it reads.
Outside the hall horses are tethered and two children mimic their elders with as much proper dance hall etiquette as they can muster.
