DESCRIPTION:  A refugee of the Spanish civil war, Lobo first arrived in Paris in March 1939 and immediately found his place within the vibrant artistic life of the city. He formed close friendships with Pablo Picasso, Henri Laurens and other members of the School of Paris, a group defined primarily by each artist’s striking individuality. Lobo soon secured an impressive international reputation that, through over fifty solo exhibitions, he constantly re-affirmed over the entire course of his career.

In this late work, Lobo, who never had children, celebrates the bond between mother and child. Eschewing sentimentality, the drawing conveys a sense of intimate affection and serenity, embodied by their mutual gaze. Like Henry Moore, he portrays the mother as the eternal protectoress, who, together with her child, forms an unassailable and immutable unit.
