Mid-Morning Open Thread


Maternal Care
Friedrich Eduard Meyerheim

The Meyerheim family were painting fools! Two of Friedrich's brothers and two of his sons were artists.'s all I know about him, other than he knew how to paint.

I love the little details of this work; the stripes on the blanket, the cracked plaster on the walls, the slightly open book in mom's hand (her thumb is holding it open!)....

And we can read into their expressions whatever we wish. Is she exasperated because her young daughter is insisting on just one more bedtime story? Is the child in the last stages of consumption, and the frantic mother is praying?

We'll never know, nor should we!
