Christmas in Art

I’m always moved by art and love to share pieces that touch me. This is Jean Baptiste Marie Pierre’s Nativity. He was an 18th century French painter who served as Premier peintre du Roi (Head painter of the King!) from 1770 till his death in 1789. I love the way the source of light for the whole canvas seems to be emanating from the baby Jesus. Light of the world, indeed.
