This is not just a portrait of a merely conventional and scarcely individualized rendering of a beautiful child and mother, but a portrait defines a harmonious tone of Victorian motherhood. The gesture of the child seems spontaneous and unpoised; the mother defines the enticements of femininity in a poetic light while giving a protective stare to the viewer while being well aware of her baby’s gestures.
This hand tinted chromolithograph dates from the mid 1870’s and remains in the original gold gilt frame which is nothing short of spectacular. This is the type of decorative art would have found in southern antebellum mansions proudly displayed above a long brick laden fireplace.
Simply remarkable it has survived.
