Original bronze sculpture by American painter, printmaker, and sculptor Irving Amen (1918-2011) depicts a mother cradling a swaddled child in a Cubist styling. Amen, a gifted and multifaceted artist, began drawing at the age of four years old and led a varied career of exhibitions, commissions, and teaching appointments throughout his life, including posts at The University of Notre Dame and the Pratt Institute and murals in the United States and Belgium. Freestanding on a squared base, this original bronze displays a hearty, dark patina and is signed in the casting by the artist on the reverse side of the sculpture.
