Filipino Lippi

Virgin With Children, ????
Oil on canvas

Had a hard time finding a quality photo of this painting, but this seems the most faithful to the colors. Enlarge the picture and check out the details! The detailed background, the realistic folds and drapery of their clothes, the transparency of Mary's headcovering, the beads in her hair, the decorations on her dress, the shades of pink on her face, the delicate gold halos she and baby Jesus have, her soft and elegant hands, the angel staring whimsically at the viewer, the tasseled cushion–this painting is so full of pretty!
