Madonna and Child - Bartolomeo Esteban Murillo. 166x115

Bartolomeo Esteban Murillo is a famous Spanish painter, the head of the Seville school, the last great master of the golden age of Spanish painting.

The Dresden picture is unusually beautiful. This is one of the best examples of the late period of the artist. At the indicated time, Murillo created a large number of paintings on the themes of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, Madonna and Child and other religious subjects.

Female and children's images of the master are always unusually touching. Despite the obvious religious nature and purpose of these paintings, they demonstrate ordinary human types - in all their artlessness, naturalness, immediacy. The Madonna on these canvases and Dresden, perhaps, first of all, is still a very young creature. She touchingly protects the Son, although it is clear that she herself needs protection - an amazing artistic embodiment of strength, contained in weakness. And since we can ascertain this feature in other paintings by Murillo on this plot, then, obviously, we can talk about a certain religious and philosophical concept of the artist, embodied unusually vividly.
