Description:
William Bouguereau (1825-1905)
Le Repos [Rest]
Oil on canvas, 1879
64 1/2 x 42 1/8 inches (164 x 107 cm)
Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland

Though the family depicted in this scene is poor, one can tell that they understand that money does not necessarily buy happiness. The mother tenderly holds her baby with her older son asleep at her feet indicating the joy and peace that can be found in everyday family life and in motherhood. The mother gazes out at her viewers as if to ask how she could possibly need more then she already has, her greatest treasures lying in her arms and at her feet. Bouguereau was a deeply religious man, and the church in the background symbolizes that God rules over the rich as well as the poor, and that all people are children of God and equal in His eyes.
