I love the colour and detail in Klimt's work and 'Mother and Child' is no exception.
Painted in 1905, it was part of his 'Three Ages of Women' collection.
This piece has always been a favourite painting of mine; I remember first seeing it (not in person unfortunately) during my final year of school, studying art for my higher school certificate. Now as a Mother I identify with the love, security and protection envisioned in the painting and subject. I hope to see it one day in Rome.
