Among Presser’s enormous output are hugely
successful portraits of individual and groups of children. The sweetness and paternal love he had for ”les innocents” show through in both this photograph, taken in the last period of his life among the children of Paris, and in the paintings he produced.

 
Irwin Hoffman said of Presser,
“ He essentially had a child-like innocence. He was full of faith and love. His tenderness, compassion and love of people was touched with deep sorrow. One can see this in his drawings, especially of children, where the purity and sweetness of his nature is perfectly expressed.”
