    Everyday components of family life were endlessly interesting to Samuel P. Ziegler. Many of them appeared in his art. His wife's cookery, shoes worn by his children, the family Nash perched on a grease rack, or a tree in the backyard all became objects of his artistic attention at one time or another. In 1945, a raft of sketches Ziegler had made years earlier while looking after his children became the basis for a series of thirty portraits. Ziegler, who painted daily, termed it a family history. My Pets is an experiment in design and color, quickly painted using colors from Ziegler's distinctive chromatic palette. It is a work emblematic of Professor Ziegler's penchant for producing small paintings of things that surrounded him.
