If your mother likes bold colors and Impressionist textures, we have just the painting for her!

Portrait

One of our favorite paintings is this historical American portrait.  This comes from an age when portraits of matriarchs and patriarchs hung in a prominent place in the home.  This is an American art historical tradition honoring mothers – perfect for Mother’s Day!
