Artwork Detail Request a print

Both the rich rose madder tones of the mother’s clothes and her cross-legged position suggest that this watercolour was created while Hodgkins was in Morocco. She travelled to Tangier in November 1902, remaining there until March, when she moved on briefly to Tetuan. The subjects were probably indoors, as most women would have had their heads covered if outside. Both mother and child stare intently at the artist, appearing slightly distrustful of this novel experience.
