La Virgen y el Niño con Santa Ana

To commemorate the holiday traditions of “Nochebuena” and Christmas I am posting this portrait of “The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne” by the Greek artist El Greco (b. 1541, d. 1614), who completed this work in the year 1600 in Toledo, Spain, where El Greco lived during the second half of his life. (This oil on canvas is now part of the art collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut.) One of the things that I love about this work is that includes Saint Anne, the mother of the Virgin Mary and Jesus’ maternal grandmother.
