About

In this painting, Angelica Kauffman imparts a moralizing image on motherhood and Enlightenment ideals to the viewers. The painting is an example of her passion for history painting, depicting Cornelia, mother to the influential Roman politicians Tiberius and Gaius Gracchus, surrounded by her three children. To the left of her are her sons, and to the right of her is her daughter, Sempronia. The seated woman beside the four figures holds jewelry and/or treasure in her hands, which contrasts with Cornelia’s treasures – her children. This painting demonstrates the neoclassical movement’s understated approach to the background, choosing to focus more so on the actions of man. Kauffman praises virtue in this particular painting by depicting Cornelia as a humble and empathetic role model to her children, putting them first.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
