In a dim hall with high ceilings, tall arches, garlands, and cherub statues, a light-skinned woman in a blue robe holds a light-skinned baby. Many golden rays radiate from her head. The baby seated on the woman’s lap has a similar halo. The baby wears a sheer garment with orange details. He nurses at the woman’s exposed breast. A light-skinned man in a red robe and black hat sits at an easel to the left, facing the mother and child. He gazes down at a panel on the easel, holding a brush to it with his right hand.
