15159. Breakfast in Bed (Mary Cassatt) and Hope I (Gustav Klimt).
Both paintings are concerned with the theme of motherhood; however, there are many differences in how this theme is expressed. Basically, Cassatt presents an intimate, subjective portrayal of a mother and child; however, Klimt uses death images and decorative elements in order to turn a pregnant nude into an "object" on which his own hopes and fears are projected. 14 pages, 25 footnotes, 8 bibliographic references.
