Art 115


This is one of the many Madonnas Raphael is famous for. Mary is young and beautiful and is gently reaching out to Jesus showing her motherly interaction with him. Raphael is excellent at foreshortening which is used here to put Mary and Joseph further behind to make Jesus the main focus. Joseph is the furthest back. This is to focus on Jesus but next you focus on the interaction between Mary and Jesus.
