Maternity (1917) is a very peaceful and calming painting! It was painted by Edmund Leighton (1852-1922), who loved to create intimate and intriguing Medieval scenes. He loved to let us guess what the story behind the painting is, giving us small hints in the title and the details of the painting. Is the baby about to be baptized? Is dad a soldier who cannot be present? And why is the other woman using her prayer book? #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilPaint #OilonCanvas #Leighton #EdmundLeighton #Maternity #Baptism #Baptized #Peaceful #Calming #Medieval #BritishArt #EnglishArtist #Baby #Newborn
