Notes   Framed and Linen backed, original stone lithograph created by Cappiello. “This eloquent design, Cappiello's last, displays a mother and her children in a statue-like grouping for the Ministry of Public Health's National Children's Week . . . Worthy of being executed as a sculpture, the power that emanates from the unapologetically full-figured, harmonious mother figure bursts off the paper's surface. Adding to the strength of the image is the use of the deep indigo-blue, used in subtly shifting nuances, as the single color” (Cappiello/Rennert, p. 326). This is the smallest size of the three known formats.
