About Anne Gournay

About the artwork

A Mother's Love was inspired by Anne’s youngest daughter, Ambre, who was passionate about Africa at age 2, and instead of Peppa Pig, only wanted to watch Planet Earth, Africa, etc... as well as only read the same book about African animals over and over again. (Many parents will relate to that!). Anne made this print for Ambre’s bedroom, using a very wide array of printmaking techniques, from soft ground to create the elephant skin texture, to the hard ground to create deeply etched lines, including aquatint, to create tones, and soft ground again to create shadows. The plate could have gone awfully wrong at each stage, but miraculously came out as a beautiful celebration of the bond between a mother and her child. « I guess the spirits of all the animal mothers Ambre admired were watching over me! » says Anne. The print is a in a very dark sepia tone and is an edition of 40, all signed and numbered on the front.
