A large and very unique gouache painting of a mother feeding her baby, painted in a distinctly modernist style.
The subject of the painting – a mother breastfeeding her child – is an intimate, personal one. Yet intriguingly, the style in which the artist had chosen to depict this scene seems to remove this element of intimacy, at least at first glance. What we notice at first are the lines and shapes rather than the actual scene. The artist has created a geometric effect within the picture, playing with shape, form, line, colour and pattern. Bold outlines in black demarcate each of the coloured sections, imbuing it with an architectural effect.
The painting is housed in its original mid century gilt frame with an inner fabric lined slip. The painting is in good vintage condition. There is some age toning to the inner section of the frame, and some minor scuffing to the outer edges. The painting is set behind a thick pane of glass.
Size: 76 x 66 cm (including frame)
