Artist Virginia Demont-Breton │ The Fisherman's Wife after Bathing Her Children │TGIVF

When I came across this painting online the other day, I stopped scrolling. It took my breath away. The artist is Virginie Demont-Breton, a French painter, whose work became known from the 1880s and beyond.

There's a lot to love about it and I, many moons ago as a young mom with two boys, can relate to it. It's a snippet of a mom's life.

The boys she's carrying, where she's walking - on the rocks - balancing life and work and ... everything. Her face is angelic. And the point of the whole piece, in my opinion. She is a mom. She is an angel. What a beautiful work of art.

Have a wonderful Friday. Thank God it's Vintage Friday. (TGIVF)
