This monochromatic artwork is highly reminiscent of the Renaissance paintings decorating the churches of Rome. Mother Mary holding baby Christ in her lap, has been an inspiration to many an artist. The artist, aware of the strength of his draughtsmanship has intentionally inhibited colour from his painting. This is, in essence, a drawing, filled with deep emotion. The folds of the mother's clothes are dark in shade in contrast to the white of the baby's. The shading achieves a miraculous effect, the line being cubist in nature. She holds the baby lovingly close and looks at him tenderly. Like, mentioned above, there is no doubt about the emotions they share.
While the entire drawing is in black and white, the lips are shaded in pink. They are trifle close to the nose, giving a larger space to the chin. The deft ability of the artist is apparent in the manner he has achieved the softness in the eyes. The seat of the sitting figure has been done away with, but the large folds of the clothes make up for it or help to conceal it ever if it was there.
