The Virgin and Child With St. Anne and St. John the Baptist– Da Vinci

In this famous sketch by the renowned Leonardo da Vinci, the Virgin Mary sits on the lap of her mother, Saint Anne, while holding the Child Jesus out to His cousin, the Child John the Baptist. Our Lord raises His hand to bless John. St. Anne gazes lovingly at Mary while pointing to Heaven. The positioning of the figures in this artwork conveys a wonderful sense of dynamism.
