Charity and Her Children - Nursing Mothers PaintingMore Information:
Oil paintings - From the Catholic tradition of Mary suckling the Christ child, this painting interweaves the nursing mother with the attributes of fecund Artemis of Ephesus who is characterized by an entire torso of breasts.
The verdaccio (traditional green undertone used for) the Virgin’s complexion, displays the loss of carnation in her cheek under her burden. This metaphor serves those that have sacrificed their physical health to support their progeny. Strangely, those women who own or operate galleries have a particular affinity for this work.
