Ceruti dettaglio

A follow-up to my earlier post on a painting by Giacomo Ceruti.

The concentration and seriousness on the little girl’s face is beautiful. It doesn’t make me think of my own little girls so much as Giovanni’s daughter. I also love the adult’s hand cradling and guiding the little girl’s hand. This is a joint process, something mother (or aunty or big sister or friend) and child are doing together.

Many thanks for sending the image to me, Giovanni.
