      If the painting was restored properly, it would be discovered that there is are subtle differences and variations in shading of the area around the baby’s face and mother’s hand – suggesting that the scene is far more intimate than one of parental adoration. The position of the mother’s hand, her reclined position, as well as the angle at which the baby’s face is turned away from the viewer may indicate that the baby is being – fed. This would make this work a great deal more interesting, I believe, were it to be put up for auction.
