The visitor has a slight sense of confusion on her face as if she is trying to understand how family can be worth more then jewels. The figures seem almost frozen in their positions, making the viewer feel like an outsider looking in. The children show love for one another and their mother by either holding each other's hands or holding the mother's hand. Angelica Kauffmann doesn't put a lot of detail into this painting because the idea she is trying to express is simple and true. A mother's job is to value her children and her family more than anything else, and that is exactly what this painting is trying to convey to the viewer though the composition.
In The Village Bride painting the composition is made up of many people, who are observing a wedding. Unlike the Angelica Kauffmann painting it is harder to understand who all the people in the painting are and it is much more complex. The fiance in the middle is handing money over to a man with his arms stretched out as if to welcome the fiance into the family. The family is probably a peasant family because of the surrounding in which they are located, and the clothing, which they are wearing. This scene seems more chaotic with all the characters in the painting
