Why should an artist portray his or her mother? Simply because she's there, an available and willing model, our out of filial affection? This charming book features 40 portraits of mothers, by artists including Rembrandt, Rossetti, Van Gogh, Chagall, Whistler, Picasso, Kahlo and Hockney. Combining art history and biographical anecdote, this delightful collection celebrates the powerful relationship between sons and daughters and their mothers.
