Born in a family of Florentine craftsmen, Armando Spadini trains as a painter and a ceramist, and exhibits his works as early as 1906, at the 59th Annual Exhibition of Fine Arts of Florence. In 1910, he settles in Rome, where he starts a career as a portraitist and painter of vedute. After World War I he knows a deserved recognition, about fifty of his works, including this one, are exhibited in 1924 at the Venice Biennale, in a room entirely dedicated to Spadini, rewarding him with a celebrity he won't have much time to enjoy as he dies in 1918, aged 42.

 

This magnificent Maternity was painted at the beginning of the Roman period. Spadini executed it in 1911, at a time when he gives up on tumultuous effects, to reach a form of calm and serenity that could be linked to classicism. The colours he uses are soft and bright, and his brushstroke is very supple. The composition and the figures of the women and the child impress by their monumentality. In Adolfo Venturi's own words (A. Venturi, Armando Spadini, Milan, 1927, p. XI), the painting seems imagined as a "pala d'altare", a panel from an altarpiece. Likewise, the deliberately light handling of the faces shows Spadini's will to set the scene outside any precise realism, thus giving a timeless image of maternity, that in some ways refers to the Cinquecento art, specifically to Andrea del Sarto's manner, that seemed to inspire Spadini.
