Italian Mother and Child, Ellis Island, New York, 1905, by Lewis Wickes Hine

What an artistically composed photo this is of a woman and daughter documenting their mourning. Really impactful photo.

Is this post-mortem? The mother's hands offer no support to her child. Even the one behind her back is curled into a fist. The natural position would have been to open-handedly lend support, as well as the mother's loving touch. The only thing is that the mother's face looks very alive.

Carte-de-visite portrait of Edmonia Lewis (1845-1890), African American Sculptor. Lewis, the first famous American sculptor of African descent, had a Chippewa mother and a free black father. After being orphaned at age twelve, she was adopted by abolitionist parents and eventually developed into an accomplished Neo-classical sculptor. While in Rome, she worked and exhibited with the likes of Harriet Hosmer. #Victorian #women #artists

The mother's tender feelings for her daughter are palpable
