Holy Family with Angels

Biblical painting by Adam Elsheimer

Dramatic oil on copper painting by the German artist Adam Elsheimer(1578-1610). Elsheimer depicts the Virgin Mary and Jesus surrounded by angels.

A shepherd and one of his little lambs sit at Mary’s feet as numerous angels appear to wait their turn to see that infant Christ child for themselves.

This painting, like all of the paintings on The Famous Artists is in the public domain. Wouldn’t it make a beautiful Christmas card.
