Irwin D. Hoffman
The Hen and Chick, c.1936
Oil on canvas
Signed lower right: "Irwin D. Hoffman". In fine condition. This painting is one of several versions in etching, drawing, and painting of this dramatic and intimate subject.
"That's what you see all over. Children seem to be constantly with their mothers as in 'Cactus and Tortillas' and 'The Hen and Chick.' The relationship between mothers and daughters seems close and deep." (commentary by Irwin D. Hoffman in "Irwin D. Hoffman: An Artist's Life," Boston Public Library 1982.)
