Mother And Child
[F Plössl]

Regular price £259.00

DESCRIPTION

On the face of it, this painting could simply be construed as a depiction of a proud mother and her loving child. She’s looking straight towards us as she holds the left hand of her doting son. He’s wearing a blue outfit with white trim and places his arms on his mother’s shoulders.

However, when you consider that the painting is dated 1945 and it originates in Germany, it becomes potentially much more significant. Is this merely an innocuous family image or could it be a satirical reference following the end of World War II? Either way, it’s certainly unusual and makes for an interesting talking point.

Signed ‘F Plössl’ in the bottom right.

Please just ask if you would like this painting to be framed and we will try to source something appropriate for its age. We only charge for the cost of the actual frame (approximately £50) and include the framing process for free.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
