Black and white, positive and negative space are all of equal value in this Beardsley-like print of a mother and child. Standing off-center in an expanse of white, the black-gowned mother clutches her plump baby to her. The child has flowers nestled in its dark curls. The mother's long full hair is also decorated with flowers. The duo gaze happily into each others eyes. Beyond the simple halos of each is a large feather and flower patterned halo.
