Mother & Child Painting by Shoshannah

Oil on linen painting by Shoshannah entitled ‘Private Life’ circa 1959. Shoshannah taught at the Chicago Art Institute and exhibited her works for only a brief part of her life. This piece was purchased from her son and is from a small Mother and Child series that she did in the late 1950’s. Shoshannah’s husband was a cabinet maker and custom made this frame for the piece.
