The Blessed Virgin Mary with the Infant
Author: N / A
Created: first half of the 17th century.
The image of the sculpture is amazing. It is one of the most beautiful works of art from the early 17th century Lithuania. The sculpture is well preserved and still has much of authentic polychrome. Similar works of plastic art are depicted in the catalogue of the book Christianity in Lithuanian Art, v.1, p. 122: sideboard doors, St. Francis, St. Clara. The mood of these paintings and of the sculpture The Blessed Virgin Mary with the Infant is anaemic and lightly melancholic. There is much similarity in the face expressions and plasticity of the works. Such spiritual mood is even more emphasised by the absence of any connection between Mary and the Infant.
