The stocky human figures featured in Antonio Austria’s works, with their tubular limbs and stubby hands, are simply and definitively distinguished.

Austria’s take on the Mother and Child theme possesses a quaint, yet welcoming appeal. The compositional simplicity of the piece elaborates the intimacy of the scene; the cozy backdrop, nostalgic palette selection, and affectionate subjects come together to complete the homey setting, bearing with it a unique and modest elegance.
