Of all the subjects in all of art history, I would place money on Madonna and Child being the most represented subject in art. Just type “Madonna and Child” into a Google image search, and you will find an endless list of beautiful artworks. Today, I was going to do a 5 favorite Madonna and Child paintings post, but I absolutely couldn’t pick 5. I moved it to 10, then 12, then 20, and then I ended up at 25. I just found a 26th, and I can’t leave it out, so technically there are 26 in this list now. I pretty much spent all day looking at Madonnas.

I’ll probably use these in future lessons on the blog. Let me know which one is your favorite so I know which one to do first. 🙂
I’m taking a 2 week blogging break. I’ll see in you 2015! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year! 🙂
