I chose this painting mainly because I thought it was cute. The subject of a woman and her child is a recurring work of Mary Cassat and I like it a lot. It is somewhat comforting, because I feel as thought the bond between a mother and child is stronger then anything else. I like how the mother is embracing the daughter, but the daughters attention is somewhere else. I feel as though, it is a very strong moment between the two, and the mother is showing a lot of subtle love.
