Beautiful Artwork

Recommended Posts

Mr Cameron

I need some art on my walls.

What are your most beautiful pictures of Our Lord and Our Lady? From classic to modern, any style.

This is a massive painting in the original...I'm lucky to have a little print in my room.  I love the little angels attending to Our Lady's robe.  Mary Queen of Heaven at the National Gallery of Art in DC.  https://www.nga.gov/content/ngaweb/Collection/art-object-page.41595.html

You can't go wrong with Bl. John of Fiesole aka Fra Angelico.  His Madonna of Humility (also at the NGA in DC) I'm very fond of.  You can see the reflection of Christ's radiance in her face.  Seeing the painting in person, your eye is drawn to her lips - those are lips of silence and humility.  Nothing needs to be said, only adoration is going on here!  https://www.nga.gov/content/ngaweb/Collection/art-object-page.5.html

It's hard to go wrong with the Holy Face of Manoppello.

Check out Daniel Mitsui's page.  Current Catholic artist.  He has stuff for the tight of budget and the less tight of budget - from originals to prints of his own stuff. http://www.danielmitsui.com/00_pages/religious.html
