11 Pino Artworks That Will Make You Want to Hug Your Mother

There’s something indescribable about moms. They exude a calm comfort, this sense of maternal caring and nurturing. Even those of us with moms who are more inclined to chase us around the kitchen with a wooden spoon than bake us cookies find ourselves unexpectedly soothed by just being near our mothers.

It’s one of the many reasons we devote a whole day to celebrating moms.

That ethereal sense of “mom calm” is a major component in the artwork of Pino, truly one of the greatest illustrators of the 20th century.

Pino was born in Bari, Italy during World War II. Most of the men in his city were off fighting or had been killed in the war. He fondly recalls growing up surrounded by the women of Bari—his mother, aunts, grandmothers, and cousins—strong women who radiated domestic tranquility in such uncertain times.

“I remember them as being wonderful and beautiful,” Pino said.

When viewing Pino’s body of work, it’s impossible not to notice his recurring motif of mothers caring for their children. His paintings do a remarkable job of bringing that indefinable sense of comfort we associate with our moms to life.

If you’re in the mood to celebrate your mother—or if you just need a reminder of how beautiful motherhood can be—take a moment to browse these 11 works of art from Pino that will definitely make you want to call your mom.
