The twins would ask their dear loving father to draw "an Indian
on a horse" or "a stream-line train" and then the boys would
copy their father's drawing.   Years later, Vincent said: "When
the boys were 5 years old , I stopped drawing because their
drawings were better than mine."  Then Harriet took over.

In Kindergarten, two       
boys would threaten     
the twins with: "If you   
don't draw us a picture
that we can bring
home   to our  mother,
we are   going to beat
you up!"      The twins
soon      learned to
draw well.
