The canvas portrays a sleeping child with his mother lovingly watching over him. She is bent over him and seems to be listening to his breathing with attention and warmth. The room is simple and bare, filled only with the sweetness of the moment, and silence seems to reign supreme. The painting is a fine example of the oil production of Luigi Di Giovanni, a painter and decorator, much appreciated as a portraitist with pastels and watercolours, who was capable of diluting reality with a graceful style.
