Images of Madonna and Child

For centuries the image of Madonna and Child appeared in art as a nursing mother and child.  The image would have been a common one for artists and patrons alike.  Mothers nursed their children in every culture, encouraged and revered in this role by every religious tradition.

Today we offer a nod to the day’s celebratory history of mother and child, and the rich symbolism of milk and nurturing.
