Mother and child, New York, 1953, Elliott Erwitt

Mother and child, New York, 1953, Elliott Erwitt

Description :

Vintage print signed.

In 1953, Elliott Erwitt was starting a family in his home of New York City. His image, a candid snapshot of his first wife, with their baby and cat, has since become recognized as a classic of photography in the humanist tradition. "It’s a family picture: my first child, my first wife and my first cat.’ Highlighting the dual perspectives of a new father snapping a picture of his young family and the professional photographer composing an image of a newborn child perfectly framed by her admiring mother on the right and the elongated form of a lounging cat on the left, ‘Mother and Child’ exemplifies Elliott Erwitt’s ability to find the emotional balance between the personal and the universal.
