Virgin & Child With St. Rosalia – Murillo

This painting by E. Murillo shows the Blessed Virgin Mary holding the Christ Child as Saint Rosalia, the twelfth-century Italian hermit, presents the Blessed Mother and Divine Child with flowers. White-clad virgins, holding palms, stand by watching. Cherubs look down from the clouds. In the background, a priest preaches to a crowd gathered below him in a city street.
