Bartolome Estebano Murillos description of the Immaculate Conception

The Immaculate Conception represents if not the most important, then probably one of the most important moments not only in the Bible but also in the Christian faith, as well as in many works of great artists, which is the famous Murillo.

Based on the Christian faith, the son of God is both fully divine and fully human. The beginning of the earthly life of Christ, it begins with the immaculate conception, which, apparently, very much worried the artist, as he repeatedly returned to this topic. It is worth noting that several museums have more versions of this painting by the master.

One has only once, to look at this work, as it becomes clear why the artist was given the nickname “Raphael from Seville”. Favorite wonderful visions, very brightly and effectively look in especially large and volumetric compositions.

This type of religious painting is based on the immaculate conception of Catholic dogma. But the very image of the girl is directly connected with the Virgin Mary, which is found in Spanish cults, which is initially much wider.

In addition to Murillo, the theme of the immaculate conception was raised in his works, absolutely all the painters of Spain. But the top of the vision of this topic, recognized the work of Murigno.

In most of the master’s works, Maria, still very young, stands on the earthly sphere or on the crescent. She is easily extolled up, surrounded by a large number of soaring angels, which are scattered around her, like divine festoons in a hazy dark-golden hue.

Primordiality, innocence, youth, and naturally a divine principle are the main theses of this work, which can enchant even viewers who are far from church legends. It is amazing how fascinating and gentle the whole image looks, surrounded by angels.
