I have been hunting around the internets for some truly great nativity paintings. Doing any kind of internet search involving the word madonna requires an iron stomach, but I did find a few I want to share. I discovered (again) how truly difficult such paintings are to pull off. Even the masters struggled with the subject, in my opinion. By far, most nativity paintings I wouldn't care to hang on my wall. Some of these can be viewed at the Art Renewal Center (link at left). You can also purchase a high quality reproduction of almost any image in their vast online collection.
God bless all on this Holy Day.
