Humourous, Vintage Paintings of Mothers and Children

When I think of a typical hundred year-old painting  of a mother with her children, I think of idealized images where everyone has a sombre expression on their faces.  Well these painters had a sense of as humour as they capture the moments when a mother is overwhelmed by her children's need to touch her, even when she tries to work. These artists must have been fathers because they have remarkably insights  into the mother/ child dynamic. .They remind me of the days when I felt like a mauled mother cat, feeling like if one more person touched me that I would scream.

Fear not, I am in the process of finding out each painter's name but my understanding is that if a painting is 100 years old, it is in the public domain.
