Christ Bids Farewell To His Mother by El Greco. I absolutely love this painting -- I love how natural they both look. I love how it looks like she could be saying "Now, son, I know you have important work to do but don't forget to change your underwear and brush your teeth," and how it looks like he could be saying, "I KNOW, MOM!" but it's totally affectionate on both their parts.
