RELIGIOUS PRINT -DEPICTION OF MADONNA AND CHILD BY GERARD DAVID (1460-1523) TITLED "REST ON THE FLIGHT INTO EGYPT" 1510 - NOW HOUSED AT NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART WASHINGTON D.C.

OVERVIEW
"The short biblical account of the Flight into Egypt (Matt. 2:13–14) was elaborated upon by Early Christian and medieval theologians. In one of these apocryphal legends, the weary family paused during their journey after three days of travel. The Virgin longed for food, but the date–palm branches were too high for Joseph to pick any fruit. Thereupon Jesus commanded the tree to lower its branches. David deemphasized this miracle by giving Joseph a sturdy stick and by replacing the date palm with a Flemish chestnut tree, but a sixteenth–century audience would have remembered the apocryphal story. There are also indications of the special significance of the family: the Madonna wears robes in her symbolic colors of red and blue; fine rays of golden light emanate from the mother's head and that of the child; and the bunch of grapes held by the Madonna is a well–known symbol of the Eucharist."

THIS IS A HIGH QUALITY PRINT WHICH HAS BEEN BEAUTIFULLY AND TASTEFULLY FRAMED IN A SUBSTANTIAL ORNATE VINTAGE FRAME AND HAS A NON REFLECTIVE GLASS COVER.
