The Madonna And Child Art
Length: 1 pages (358 Words)
The Madonna and Child Art
The Madonna and child art is a symbol of Mary and her child Jesus. Sandro Botticelli drew the image in 1480. The word Madonna is derived from Italian ‘ma donna’ that means ‘my lady.’ The image is considered sacred and held as a central icon to the beliefs of both Christian and Orthodox Church members. In some arts, the image of Mary and infant Jesus is often surrounded by either angel or worshipping saints to reflect the scene of Annunciation of Mary as the bible claims. The earliest images of Madonna were either painted or sculptured by renowned artists such as Duccio, Michelangelo, Rubens, and Bellini.
The Madonna portrait depicted the Holy Family that represented baby Jesus with his immediate family. In the Roman Catholic Church, there are two major versions of the painting that Christians refer to as the holy family’s association with the church. The first version of the image shows the Virgin and her infant with St. Joseph while the second shows the Virgin Mary and her child being adored by St. Anne. Their images have earned a prominent space as a sacred monumental church decoration.
