A woman holding a child is seated on an easy chair in a living room with her family gathered around her.

A dark-skinned man and children gather around a dark-skinned woman seated in an armchair against a vibrantly colorful background in a living room. The woman looks toward us, wearing a light-colored necklace and earrings as she holds a small child in her arms. At left in a gray striped blazer, the man looks on, with one arm around the woman’s shoulder and one hand on a child’s back. A young girl in a dress looks at the viewer as she holds flowers and leans back against the woman’s legs. A young boy stands next to her at left, gesturing toward her. In some places, outlines next to the figures are visible, showing limbs or heads in slightly alternate positions.
