Description

On the Painting:

Giovanni Bellini has become one of my favorite painters. I’m not even sure why because his work doesn’t have that classical beauty of idealized perfection.

But all his paintings of the Madonna are so simple, sweet and striking. Mary is serene, poised, but young. When you see the full painting (this is zoomed in just to Mary’s face), the baby Jesus is always doing something so very toddler-like, whether he’s crawling away, unable to hold up his own head, or tottering precariously off her lap, and Mary is gently handling it.

It emphasizes the humanity of the Son of God – Jesus being fully human AND fully divine.

In this painting, Mary looks like a highschooler. That’s what I always think about. She has the soft chin and cheeks of a baby face, but the eyes of a mature woman. It’s precisely the correct age for Mary during the Annunciation.

 

Bellini was an artist for 65 years of his life. He saw the beginnings of oil paint and quickly became a master at the new medium. Painting in Venice for his entire career, he became known as one of the most influential Venetian artists and the teacher of many famous artists to come.

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
