This painting is called Mother and Child and it is by Dorothea Lange. I was curious to see what other work was done by Dorothea Lange and when I searched her name on the MOMA website this is what came up. It was done in 1952 and it's medium was geltain silver print. This picture is classified under photography. I really like this picture because it is what I picture people looking like back in the day. I also like how the woman and child are not posing and it seems like someone took it while they were walking by. The black and white portrait makes the painting so much better. I don't think the picture would have the same meaning or feeling if it was done in color.
