About The Artwork

Every year we celebrate a natural birth, a story that takes place in the most primitive surroundings. Mary, giving birth to the Son of God in a stable, that infamous image portrayed recurrently in our culture, familiar to even the non-religious. Yet how is it that beyond Julius Garibaldi’s 1891 painting of Mary and Joseph slumped in raw exhaustion, we have never seen a ‘real’ depiction of birth biology, particularly of Mary in upright, ecstatic primal instinct that such an environment would have helped facilitate? Risking controversy to use universal characters to portray the ultimate ‘birth undisturbed’ amongst other mammals in a dim and lowly environment, suggests to modern woman that often in birth, less is more. To depict Mary in the powerful moment of bringing Christ Earthside, into the calm and steady hands of an actively participating Joseph, protests any notion that the humbling, creative power of woman is anything but as awe-inspiring as the creative hand of God himself. ____ ‘The Creation of Man’, bestseller from fine art series Birth Undisturbed by Natalie Lennard, in Collector's Medium Edition on Hahnemuhle Pearl Paper at 60 x 80cm, limited to 15 +2AP.

Proud to present multi-award-winning series 'Birth Undisturbed' available as limited edition prints here on Saatchi Art. In Birth Undisturbed, Natalie Lennard strives to combine the rawness of childbirth and the beauty of narrative photography in a completely unprecedented way, depicting birthing scenes of icons from the Virgin Mary to Calamity Jane and the Queen. Partly inspired by her own experience of motherhood and birth, and by highlighting key figureheads and writers from the realm of essential birth philosophy, the timeliness of the series is ever more appropriate in a global maternity crisis. The series is accompanied with a short film for each piece. Birth Undisturbed has won multiple awards for its images and filmmaking, including the Julia Margaret Cameron Award, BJP Portrait of Humanity, ND Awards Fine Art, and Aesthetica Short Film Festival Official Selection 2020.
