This is the exquisite Whistler's Mother by James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903). The original is housed in the famous Museé d'Orsay in Paris, where it continues to inspire art lovers as a tender tribute to motherhood. As the second most recognized painting in the history of art, this masterpiece is surpassed in acclaim only by Leonardo Da Vinci's celebrated Mona Lisa. By alluding to music with the original title of Arrangement in Gray and Black, No. 1, the perceptive Whistler disclosed a desire to evoke a universal and poetic dimension in this elegant and sentimental homage to motherhood.
Whistler's signature style is brilliantly apparent in our authentic reproduction of Whistler's Mother. The devoted son captured his mother's quiet dignity with classical lines and subdued interior lighting, and you can capture the warmth of this eternal tribute with every stitch. Whistler's Mother will become a centerpiece in your home, where it will touch everyone with its memorable grace. Makes a cherished gift to stitch for family or special friends.
