Mary: Images of the Virgin in Artby Mary
Mary: Images of the Virgin in Art portrays the life of the mother of Christ with more than 100 full-page, color reproductions of the Virgin's face as depicted by the world's greatest artist from the twelfth century to the present. From century to century, from country to country, we see the fascinating way each of the artists' representations of Mary reflects the values of their time and society. The portraits of Mary illuminate her roles as virgin and mother, mortal woman and immortal Queen of Heaven, and the way those incarnations were idealized in so many different times and places.
Viewed together, these images and words illuminate history's perceptions of the Virgin with rare immediacy, power, and intensity. An unprecedented visual and spiritual experience, Mary will inspire everyone who opens it.
