The painting by Elisa Maria Boleno, representing a ‘humble maternity’, features masses of orderly figures and a deliberately anti-naturalistic language. The painting is limited to the essential, hues of colours and chiaroscuro tones show a balanced rhythm according to the style of the Italian Novecento style. The works of this artist, who participated in the 17th Venice Biennale of 1930 with this painting, are animated by a touch of mysticism full of life and that same humanity which issues forth from this image of mother and child.
