Famous paintings celebrating mother's love

Portrait of Mother, by Paul Gauguin [Photo/]

Gauguin and Van Gogh all painted portraits of their mothers through photos. Gauguin painted his mother from a photo when she was young, while he exaggerated his mother's facial features for a little bit, with the lip thicker and nose wider, to highlight his mother's Spanish ancestry.
