Henri Matisse Madonna and Child Print
Madonna and Child by Henri Matisse. Matisse's fluid draftsmanship and control of line shines through in this minimal composition of a mother and child. It possesses a universal appeal emphasising the sanctity of maternal bonds.
Using black gestural lines, Matisse clearly conveys the emotions of love and security. As the two figures hold each other closely, their heads tilted together with faint hints of a smile crossing their lips, we sense the affection shared between mother and child.
This mounted print fits into an A4 frame (not included).
