"A Mother's Love" is a major oil painting by famed Vietnamese Contemporary artist, Nguyen Thanh Binh (B. 1954, Vietnam). His paintings of women and young children are his most sought-after internationally. This particularly poignant scene of a mother nestling her infant in her arms, in the company of her young daughter who gazes at her younger sibling with an expression of wonder and love. In the typical manner of the artist, the figures are luminous and the visual focus, with the negative space that surrounds these three figures emphasizing the harmony and tranquility of the overall composition. Painted in a confident yet simple manner, each figure is dressed in dark browns and taupes with touches of black for their hair, belts, and other details, depicted against a serene monochromatic background.

Nguyen Thanh Binh (B. 1954, Vietnam) is famous for his paintings of individuals from his native Vietnam that capture a specific emotional moment in time, either experienced alone or in groups. His inherent stylistic theme is to present the figures usually dressed in taupes or whites against simple backgrounds, creating compositions that are peaceful, thoughtful, sophisticated and harmonious. Nguyen Thanh Binh is one of the most well-known Vietnamese painters working today and has exhibited in Museums and Galleries internationally.
