MATERNIDAD BLANCA (Maternity in White)

‘MATERNIDAD BLANCA” (Maternity in White) by Dulce Beatriz  Oil on Canvas 30″ x 42″ (76.2 cm x `06.7 cm)

Mother and daughter in a tender moment, as the child embraces her mother and approaches to kiss her she is met by a look of love and a soft expression of joy in the encounter. Their embrace is highlighted by the movement of their flowing white vestments. In addition to the strong composition emphasizing the bond between mother and daughter reinforced by the masterful treatment of the mother’s eyes, the artist Dulce Beatriz adds details to further reinforce this sense of family and love between the two figures, such as the mother taking hold of the ribbon in the girl’s hair caught in the act of untying it in preparation for her to go to bed. A tender moment before saying good night. Painted from live models, this work demonstrates how Dulce Beatriz surpasses excellence in technique by showing expression and sentiments in her characters.
