Love & Compassion: Images of Mother and Child
February 4 - May 9
Art & History Museums – Maitland
The theme of mother and child has been explored throughout art history and is often charged with strong emotions. Through this motif, motherhood has been canonized, elevated, and idealized over centuries. Since the Renaissance, artists have made muses of their mothers, or paid homage to the Christian representation of Mary and Jesus. In this contemporary show, selected Florida-based artists reflect on the time-honored themes of motherhood, unconditional love, and sacrifice in a show that is at once traditional and edgy.
