D. Ghirlandaio painted this inspirational artwork of Elizabeth greeting and kneeling before her younger cousin, the Virgin Mary. This is the first moment the two have seen each other since they both became miraculously pregnant: the elderly Elizabeth with Saint John the Baptist, and the Virgin Mary with the Savior of the World.
The two other figures present in the background are Mary of Cleopas (left), and Mary of Salome (right), as based off the inscriptions above each one. Both will be present with Our Lady at the Crucifixion thirty-three years later.
