Such an intimate image of mother and child. I could also feel my throat tightening as I looked at this picture and read your post today. Thank you for sharing it, Mr.C.

What a lovely post. I've stood before the Cassatts at the Art Institute of Chicago many times, but saw this one anew, with you, with fresh eyes. Thanks!

This is an absolutely beautiful post ... it reads like the beginning (or part) of a short story.

Mrs C

What an amazingly touching piece of art. Thank you for sharing with us.

I love domestic paintings and your piece to accompany it captures your mood so well. When you said you might post on the trip I was thinking more travelogue. What a lovely surprise to get that instead. Thank you.

Your mother-in-law !

Gareth - I've just read your comment on Karen's post of yesterday! What a lovely priority to fulfil, with all the sentiment behind it, so far away from home. I've always known my precious grandchildren are in safe hands! Granny.

My immediate reaction: how wonderful! Thank you.

Fiberjoy

Exquisite.

Nan

I loved your writing. I am actually reading now a book about her and this painting is on the cover. I'm also hoping to go to an exhibit of her work this summer. Wonderful paintings of domestic life.
