Studies of a baby

Frederick Goodall British

Not on view

Goodall's striking life-size study of a baby turns demonstrates academic training and admiration for Bolognese masters. After traveling to the Middle East in 1858, the artist painted a series of works centered on biblical mothers and children shown within oriental interiors, and adapted this pose for several paintings executed during the 1870s.
