Family Tradegy 8"x8" oil #242
This family was really drawn in by this large painting. Unfortunately I forgot to get the details of the painting. It is a compelling painting which I believe tells the story of a dead child. I think it is Italian but you can never be sure without the historical details because artists seemed to frequently draw imagery from other cultures. There is a strong circular design to the composition and as a family, I can see how they would feel the emotion of the story. I researched it on the Met's site, but couldn't find it.
