Description

FA1115

Watercolor entitled “Maternal Affection” by Hannah Pitkin, circa 1810.  American School.  Verre eglomise inscribed with title and artist’s name.

Why is it special? The more we look at this, the more questions we have.  There’s the odd disproportionate anatomy throughout, and the ‘interesting’ shading of the carpet. But can anyone explain the hovering plant?
