                                                                The Bath 

The scene between a woman and her child creates a moment that is "special without being special". One hand protects the child while the other hand carefully washes the child's feet. The power of simplicity is once again seen in this painting just like it was seen in Leonardo's Mona Lisa. Moments like these are rare to have and the emotions are strong for the viewer. Not everyone is blessed to have a mother and a good one at that. Love is evident in this portrait, even in the child's position you can see it. The child presses on the mother's knee for support and touches her own thigh. This painting makes the viewer appreciate certain  moments as this one that might have been take for granted and heightens the amount of respect for women and mothers in that society.
