The first painting I chose at the museum was an oil painting on canvas It depicted a women and child in a very informal setting The woman was tenderly holding a small child on her lap while bathing her I was drawn to the piece from across the room by the soft glowing toddler The child was clothed only in a small white towel and her ivory skin seemed to glow against a muted background and it wasnt until I was very close to the painting that I even realized that there was another form in the composition As I studied the painting further my eyes were drawn in the direction of the eyes of the two figures and it was then that I noticed the strong lines of the womans hands They were a little out of proportion for a woman they had an almost masculine quality Yet against the soft rounded lines of the childs thigh there was a tenderness that was almost palatable After reading the plaque next to this painting I learned that this artist used more masculine hands on all of her paintings of women and children to emphasize them I think that it not only accomplishes that but the contrast between the strong lines and soft flowing lines leads to a feeling of stability The combination of the muted colors strong solid lines of the mothers hands and the soft organic lines of the child all lead to a very peaceful moving tender portrayal of a mother and child
