Gilberte Schneider
Three Santons
Switzerland

 Three Santons, and not much else!  Gilberte Schneider chose these humble “little saints” – Jesus, Mary, and Joseph – to make her point.  Imagination is particularly fertile when it comes to accessories, simply because the essentials cannot or should not be changed.  But accessories sometimes hide or obscure the essentials.  Thus, there is welcome relief in showing but the essentials.  The Holy Family is set against a lunar landscape of bare white rocks streaked with yellow mica from the Alpine regions of Switzerland.
