Love & Compassion: Images of Mother and Child

February 4, 2021 - May 9, 2021

Art & History Museums – Maitland

Artwork by Jules André Smith

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.
