La casa dell’artista – The Artist’s House

La casa dell’artista, olio su tela di Umberto Moggioli, 1918

The Artist’s House, Oil on canvas, 1918

I saw this painting in July, while in Venice. I love the light and the warmth it radiates. I love how the mother and the daughter are working so attentively and with such focus. Yet, they are clearly enjoying each other’s company. There is a great sense of peace and comfort. There is a great sense of welcome: the door is open and the table is set. Such beauty and simplicity.
