Cod. 2452
Needle-painting on silk. Oval frame made of wood, gilt stucco and glass. Satin stitch embroidery on painted silk. The theme of the painting was very common and appreciated by French painters and engravers of the end of the Eighteenth century that wanted to represent the familiar intimacy, often idealizing the maternal love and the main role of the mother as educator and consoler. The familiar scene represents three children simply dressed in small, comfortable tunics joyously gathered around the young mother seated in an interior, near a window, while one of the children is chasing a butterfly.
