Virgin Mary

Madonna of the Sunset – Lorenzetti

P. Lorenzetti made this iconic image of the Virgin Mary holding the Child Jesus Christ. Mother and Son gaze at each other and seem to be holding a conversation. The artwork's golden background represents the sun. This painting is part of a larger artwork, entitled, Madonna With Saint Francis and Saint John the Baptist, located in the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi.
