This very charming, tender image of a mother reading a book of poems to her small child resonates well with many different interior spaces. The color has been applied in an almost impressionistic way, yet many of the features are sharply and realistically rendered, providing a welcome contrast and a sense of drama. Bright daytime light comes in through the window, shining warmly on the mother and child.

Pino Daeni (1939-2010) became famous as a book illustrator for Dell, Harlequin and other publishers, painting over 3000 book covers. He worked extensively with model Fabio in creating deeply romantic, lush images which helped sell millions of books. After leaving the publishing world, he opened galleries in Naples, Florida and South Korea featuring his work. Future galleries of Pino’s artwork will be opening in Dubai and Shanghai, China.
